Open acrylics on canvas board
New Zealand Rd.
Here is my submission to the August, 2010 Virtual Paintout challenge which is PEI, Canada. I just bought a set of Golden Open acrylics and this was my first try at using them. The set is a "traditional palette" and the colours are all very transparent, so the look I achieved was very watercolour-like. This isn't what I would call my normal style of painting but I'm interested in doing more plein-air painting to enhance my skills, so I wanted to paint this very directly in a limited timeframe.
Virtual Paintout is an online art challenge that uses Google Street View as a source of inspiration. Here is the link to my inspiration for this painting.
