Work in progress – acrylic painting

Remember the acrylic study? Well, I attemped one painting, didn’t like the composition, so this is attempt #2. Still loving the Golden Open Acrylics and I use a lot of the Open Gel Medium and Open Thinner (rather than water, which just speeds up the drying).

Anyways, this still needs some tweaking, but this is the first layer. The current plan is for this to be one panel of a diptych. I’ve done a test for the second panel, which will consist of silk, thread, and maybe some other goodies. Hopefully, I’ll get to it within a week or two.

The meaning has developed as I’ve worked on it, but I’ll keep that under wraps until it’s closer to completion.

Been working a lot this week on the silk yoyo piece, felting many a tendril, and the threaded vessel, stitching and beading. Definitely an update on that one soon! I’m really happy with how it’s coming along.
