I’ve been reading one of Jerry Yarnell’s many books. He is a TV & DVD teacher who really simplifies acrylic painting to fit into his TV episodes but he has a lot of interesting techniques. This is a version of one of his images. It’s done in an opaque style. Applying the acrylic paint was fairly enjoyable this time and by the second day of working on it I was starting to feel comfortable. I think of everything I’ve read in the last week the thought that stays with me is not to think of acrylic as a form of watercolour. It’s a different medium and requires different thinking. I realize that when I have tried acrylic in the past I kept looking to match the wonderful blending of colours, wet in wet, that you get with watercolour. Acrylic isn’t as much fun at least not for me , yet. Another very interesting thing I’m experiencing is using the same colour theory I’ve worked on in watercolour and transposing it to opaque acrylic. Colour mixing is a different feel when working with acrylic.
