September 16 - Pastures at the Kentucky Horse Park

"Pastures at the KHP" This acrylic demonstrates the layering effects of building layers and veils of color over an underpainting of large shapes like a cartoon. For example the tree started out as a solid area of pthalo green, but at this more finished stage, the tree has been pushed back by a layer of lighter green, another of burnt umber wash, and several other layers of sky color and grayed blue. Acrylics suit this method, because they dry more quickly, and can be built up with luminosity as the layers are added. An original acrylic, 9 x 12 inches, for $100. Available from the Daily Paintings Website for this date.
