I loved the immediacy of the travel sketches I did whilst travelling in the Kimberley, so wanted to translate some of that to a larger format. Still working with acrylic inks and some acrylic paint on 300gsm watercolour paper. Love those big skies!
Came across pictures from my first exhibition. What fun it was!
So now that I have time to be working towards a new exhibition, I’m still exploring a variety of styles with Acrylic paints & inks. Using the inks has taught me to be able to put a painting aside to wait for a layer to dry and then add…. A very valuable lesson and one that I have put to good use as I have started painting in oils as well. I do understand the allure of the butteriness of the oils and although initially felt conflicted between the two mediums, I can see how it has helped my techniques…even down to organising my palette better!
Still loving it!
