Take it easy. Acrylic study on MDF panel of a figure sitting., 8x6 ins using impasto.
I was experimenting with complementary colours and impasto textures here, mostly using turquoise, permanent rose, cad lemon, cobalt blue, translucent yellow and titanium white.

Choral singers. I have been experimenting a lot with acrylics recently, palette combinations and textures. What's great about acrylic paint, is that paint layers can be added so quickly, as they dry fast, as opposed to oil paint, when patience is needed for weeks or months. The problem with acrylic though is colour shifts from wet to dry and the speed needed to blend the paint on the support surface before it dries. I guess the challenge of the medium is part of the fun. Here is a recent study, acrylic on gessoed MDF panel 8x10 ins.
