On The Fence

"On The Fence"- 6"x6"-Acrylic and charcoal on canvas board
More experimenting.  This one is acrylic and charcoal on a canvas board.  I'm taking a class next week in mixed media and incorporating more drawing media, so I thought it would be fun to practice on my own before hand.  I mixed a little clear gesso into my background colour to provide a little bit more tooth for the charcoal and it worked quite well.

This was also Latvia inspired. Here is the virtual paintout link.

Green Door

I decided to do this month's virtual paintout and thought it would be fun to try a pallette knife painting.

Here is the link to my source of inspiration:  Google maps link
