Why do I love acrylic paints? Because after spending what seemed like hours, painting a convincing winter village scene, I decided that if I wasn’t convinced no one else would be either, so what to do but throw on a bit of gesso and presto a new surface appeared and I was ready to go!
A Frozen Creek, an acrylic painting (6×6) was painted on the above gesso-prepared hardboard. I had a lot of fun while painting this scene, what did I possibly have to lose – just another coat of gesso I suppose, lol! The secret to acrylic painting mistakes.
On a serious note, after I painted this scene I found that I’m still not satisfied in my winter scenes, there is something in my work that I’m after that isn’t emerging. So I did a bit of research on the technicals of painting snow, have learned a few things and hope that they will show in my next several winter paintings.
