Using the technique from the faux encaustic demo in the Winter issue of Acrylic Artist, I started another. This one is on canvas board (8 x 10 inches) I had in the corner (I seem to have a lot of bits and pieces of boards and things I've collected over the years.)
I began by choosing 3 blues and putting them down in a sweeping motion.
After it dried, I put down the second layer, separating "top" and "bottom" of the painting and laying plastic wrap over the top while the paint was still wet. Letting that dry overnight, I pulled off the plastic wrap and here is what it was at that stage. (It had to be tilted for the photo so the shine didn't block the painting in spots.)
I like it. It makes me think of a strange seascape with a wild sky! So I will let it sit for a while and decide what I should do next.
The problem with painting with acrylics, for me, is that I'm unsure where to go when I get to a stage that I like - but that needs a bit more. I guess that comes from more playing and experimenting and trying new things. Nothing can become too precious to change.
