Todays blog is inspired by my 2nd attempt at acrylic painting. I had a trawl through my own photographs to find something to paint, a very nostalgic couple of hours! It did make me realise I prefered looking through my photo albums than viewing photos on the computer. The digital age does make things easier but I do like looking at a real object, does anyone else feel the same or is it just me?
I found a few photos I felt I could paint and utlimately chose a sunset. I do love the way acrylics can be put on thickly or watered down making them similair to water colours . Here is my interpretation, although I’ve not decided on a frame yet or in fact whether it’s finished! Any input would be appreciated.
I did make life easier for myself by not painting all the boats that lined the seashore! I’d be interested to hear how other artists get their ideas for a painting.
Here are some more sunsets I found on Folksy and Etsy, a great range of styles:
