Acrylic in the Journal

My journal is more like a series of small plein air paintings than sketches or visuals that include words. Usually I have worked in watercolor or gouache. Since I’ve been working more with acrylic I thought I’d give it a try, and have really enjoyed the results. The results look quite different from the other water based media – richer and juicier. You can handle it dark to light, like oils, and sometimes that is just the easiest way to go.

The featured image is from the dog park. That dog isn’t mine, and it wasn’t hers, either. I liked the two furry coats together.

HereĀ is another acrylic page.

We were living in a temporary house for about four months and never bothered to unpack. This room was just full of our stuff.
