More on the beach.

Beach Series #4
14 X 14
Acrylic and Mediums on Canvas
Me again. I'm thrilled, I now know how to upload my work to blogger! (Thank you Carlynne, for the tutorial.) Please bear with me. I love technology but don't have as much time as I would like to learn how to use everything.
This is another in the Beach Series. I put the texture mediums on the primed stretched canvas and let them dry at least overnight. Then I start adding washes of fluid acrylic paint. I tilt the canvas in all directions and use a spray bottle of water to float the paint even more. I let each layer of paint dry before adding another. I try to keep the paint transparent as that shows off the textures to best advantage. I love the textures and I expect everyone to touch them. I also love the way the paint flows in and out of the mountains and valleys.
I'll be showing more of the Beach series and other texture pieces, so stay tuned and send us your comments.

Love the Beach Series! I really understand the desire to touch work like this. I don't sew but wander around fabric stores touching the fabric.
