Blue Curacao

Acrylic on foam core board

I did this painting about two years ago and I still love the contrast between the blue and red hues.  I love painting in acrylics, from time to time, because of the fast drying capabilities of the medium.  I’ve exploited acrylics professionally earlier in my career and know all the tricks of creating different effects.   But to just use it as a pure medium loosely, painting without regard to controlling it, to capture the moment is always fun and rewarding.

 But oils… I will always love the fluidity, texture, smoothness, brilliance, the application and the aroma of turpentine, linseed and varnish in creating a vision on a canvas or board.
