Acrylic Painting Fun

  I am often inspired to try new techniques and methods after seeing the work of other artists. Earlier this year I took an online class from Sandrine Pelissier called “Painting Flowers from imagination in mixed media“. This is my painting from the class. 9″ x 9”


Another artist who has inspired me this year is Angus Wilson. I have a ways to go to loosen up but I love his color choices and learned a lot by giving it a go. This is a music box given to our kids by an aunt with cool taste. 6″ x 6″


I also took an online class, Explore Colour, from Este Macleod this fall. This is my Project One painting. 16″ x 16″


I just really enjoy learning various techniques from artists whose styles I love. All of these paintings used acrylic paint in one form or another. The online class paintings both used imagination and a negative painting process.
