Giraffe Part 1
I'm using Deco Art Traditions Acrylic. It is a fluid acrylic and since I tend to work in layers of washes of color the consistency works well for me. I always start with light values of color and gradually keep adding the layers until the I reach the saturation level I'm looking to develop.
Next time, I'll share some of my favorite brushes and how I used them to achieve texture. This is being done on a 12 x 16 gessoboard with 3/4 inch cradle. That simply means the edges of the board are 3/4 inch and may be painted.....eliminating the need for a frame giving the painting a more modern feel.
