I’ve had to step back and re-directed my energies on family matters – one day I’ll explain. But for now, I’m back to say hello to all my friends on WP!
I haven’t done much with art, but recently began painting again it was so long since I worked with color – trust me, I was rusty. So I looked around the youtube for some inspiration and came across Will Kemp’s video’s – for me, it was time well spent. He’s a good instructor both for acrylics and mixing colors, I learned a lot and decided to do a couple studies of his tutorials. Yellow Apple is one of the studies I recently painted.
Yellow Apple, an acrylic painting (8×10) done on a heavily gessoed hardboard using Liquitex and Windsor Newton brands. My personal twist on the painting, was to create a heavily textured surface by using a palette knife and scraping heavy layers of gesso onto the hardboard. The painting was completed with many layers of acrylic paints, from the underpainting to the background and apple – it was a lot of fun playing around with color again.
