New Italy!! Acrylic Paintings

More new paintings from Italy .... I am gearing up to do the middle to last legs of this show in the upcoming month.

The show is up to 17 finished paintings... and I am adding another 20 before it's complete.

I've sold 4 -- and have interest in a few others.

I'm jazzed about this work... and can't wait to show them in the late spring!

I will keep posting work here.... as it develops and changes.

I love this series on Italy. I am a watercolorist and do not work with acrylics, so I am puzzled as to how you get such beautiful, smooth backgrounds with your acrylics - are they sprayed. They are so effective and the colors are so warm and beautiful - very Italian looking.

Not surprised some are selling already Carol as it is such a delightful series of work - but it must keep you very busy catching up with numbers. Colours and glow astonish me. Are you using acrylic inks or thinning down normal acrylic for glazes?

Un buen trabajo.

these are acrylics- heavy body. i use them thinly... sometimes i splatter the paint. i also use Liquitex Glazing Medium to put between the veils of paint. i hope this helps!
