I have been experimenting with hi-build to get some texture going. I think it makes a great base for acrylic and really like the way it shows through when you sand back the layers. This work needs some more acrylic glaze layers yet but it’s getting there… and then I need to figure out how to finish it with a frame of some sort.
This is a watercolour of some moss covered bricks behind the old library here in Patea. Our project was to work through a process that finished with completing four paintings. Of the four paintings this is my favorite, probably because of the colours. I used Indian ink, watercolours and finally gouache for the lime green moss spots.
