I had a good week painting the new acrylic of Italy.
I took my time... allowing each step to be resolved. I wasn't rushed.
In fact, there was a few days between passages -- allowing things to completely dry.
I then spent a whole day on the sky! This allowed for a velvety feel in the distance. There is a soft atmosphere to the horizon line.
This doesn't happen often in my acrylics.
I used Unbleached Titanium White. I really like it--- it has an oatmeal feel. All the blended colors look antiquated and rustic. Perfect for Italy!
