Oil over Acrylic 8X10 inches
The book said that advantages are that acrylics dry quick even when applied thick with lots of texture.Here I used acrylics to give rugged texture to the rocks and cliffs with criss cross brushstrokes using a cheap course brush.Then floated over with a lighter colour in oil.The blue sky and blue water is smooth acrylic and the white over is oil.
I'm going to try a lot more paintings with textured acrylic underpainted backgrounds then oil on top
I also used some of this new tube of Gamblin grey oil paint I was given .I guess Gamblin mixes all their left over paints into a grey and give the tubes to art stores to give away.I have never used greys before(intentially) but read and found true its usefull for dulling colours especially greens for a smokey in the distance look, works great when using my new super soft fluffy fan brush I bought in Oz that lets me float colour on and over by barely touching the canvas -como Pekel
A fun filled rainy morning and stuck inside.
I love it.
