I did a large canvas a few years ago that I’ve never been entirely satisfied with.  I used bronze metallic paint to highlight the texture but it isn’t working properly.  So I now want to bring it up to speed.  The smal piece on paper that I did today is a kind of mock-up for the work I want to do soon on the older large canvas – which looks like this at the moment:

Abstract Acrylic

This canvas is 47″ x 39″ and about 2″ deep – I haven’t really had anywhere to work on it because of its size but I’m determined next week to take it downstairs and get started. Wish me luck!

This one was an experiment using printing technique – so the paint is applied on another surface, then lifted off with waxpaper or foil and then printed onto the paper that I’m using for the composition.

There is a slight buckling of the finished work, mainly because it was not completely dry when I took the photos.  I am weighting it under pressure at the moment, so that it cures completely flat.  This is the first time I’ve worked on acrylic paper, I’m not sure about it yet – although I can already tell that it is much stronger than the multi-media paper and I like the fact that it has a linen type grain, which is enjoyable to work on.  I used gesso as primer before starting the work and many layers, using gloss medium and irridescent medium in between to set the layers properly.  I’m not 100% happy with the composition but I didn’t want to overwork it so that the colours remained fresh. I tried to evoke a feeling of lazy, hot sunny days near the sea in summer.
