I am an oil painter and have been for years; however, I recently decided to try my hand at working with acrylics. It was definitely a sharp change from oils, with an equally sharp learning curve, and a change that I was not initially embracing. But…….after I stayed with the acrylics for a bit, I have come to start loving them. I had a dream one night and it was all about adding texture to paint. The day after the dream, I went to an amazing art store in San Francisco and purchased some glass beads and sand and went home to experiment. Below, I am sharing the result of this experiment. I painted on heavyweight, 300 series, watercolor paper. I happened to have several beautiful frames laying around and I cut the paper to fit the frames and began to paint. I hope you enjoy what I have discovered as much as I enjoyed experimenting with these mediums.
Have a wonderful and productive week.
With love from San Francisco,
