I am in awe of your wide range of creativity. As a primarily landscape artist I have learned by experience how deceptively difficult it is to create good abstract art.

I am curious about how you have used acrylics and oil in this piece.

lovely color...

Tina said...

Thank you, William, and I have to agree with you, much more difficult to do than it looks. I have another piece I created shortly after this piece, which in was not easy due the fact I was greatly inspired on this one and the second I felt not quite as powerful. I wrote someone in an email recently, you cannot create something similar to one produced via inspiration, just isn't the same.

To answer your question, I love working in oils, they are my favorite. For large abstracts, however, I often use acrylic because I am able to do glazing much quicker. Once dry, I will emphasize any areas I feel need a little kick of color with a lean touch of oil paint here or there.

William will know this, but those new to painting may not, never use acrylic over oil!
