Perserverance 08


11 by 14 Acrylic impasto on Canvas panel $150.00
This painting is done impasto which refers to the thickness of the paint. Its very thick and can give the look of oil without using oil paints.  I combined  a golden gel medium with the acrylic paint to increase the body of the paint.  It tends to paint like whip creme, which is a little hard to control but is very smooth.  Also ,it gives the paint a slight gloss which is similar to oil paint.

Artist Tip:

When using these gels its best to use a pallet knife and mix the paint into the gel uniformly because if not mixed well the gel will look translucent white.  Sort of like dried glue, not a look you really want.
