I had a nice watercolor board (Fredrix watercolor canvas on board, 16 x 20 inches) in the corner looking forlorn and not being used. So...used it to do this painting, an abstracted landscape in acrylic and collage.
Acrylics give you the freedom to completely change your mind about shapes
You can see that as the painting progressed and changed.
I liked the colors in the beginning painting but they are not "my" colors, so you see things became more blue and violet and yellow as I progressed with adding the collage papers to the horizon line.
And then, it became this!!! What a change. For the better? Not sure. I did like the first and second iterations of this one and maybe got too literal. Or maybe just felt like it should look more like summer?
Live and learn - and practice practice practice. (Sorry the photo is a bit blurry - for some reason, it's harder to get a sharp image when photographing acrylic on canvas?)
This one is finished and is now called
Walk to the City of Flowers
