Trying to get a painterly, layered, rich, unfussy, not too ‘overworked looking’ effect with acrylics. Using a gloss gel medium. Applying with a squeegee. Layering by transferring onto and from baking paper. Very frustrating. Looking forward to getting back to my oils and cold wax medium in my studio at home!
Some images from an A2 (60x40cm) cartridge pad, and an A4 (40x30cm) brown card sketchbook
I’m away from home in Wales for more than two months (until November)
Getting used to making some small works on paper in any available space
This was my first temporary studio this week on my bedroom windowsill – but with oil paint not the best place!
This second temporary studio in the old back kitchen is a much better solution. It’s a bit dark but the table is on wheels so I can roll it into the lighter patch by the door when I’m working and then put it back in the corner out of the way afterwards
These are the first 2 completed pieces, ‘Waiting’ 1 & 2
2 more pieces on primed paper in progress.
I’m using up my daughter’s small selection of oils until my new order of paints arrive, hopefully tomorrow
