I thought I’d share some mini canvas paintings I did for the holidays:
Each canvas was painted with Turner acryl-gouache paint, which dries relatively quick compared to my regular acrylics. Lately I’ve been using this paint set more often for its “rose” colour – I find it easier to use to mix more vibrant purples and pinks.
This time around I was focusing on adding texture to background elements – as you can see, some turned out better than others. Overall, it was a nice speed paint session to get me motivated to make more art next year.
