Sometimes the hardest part of the painting process is titling the work. I have been on a bit of a run this year with painting mallards. Often, I know the title before I start the sketch. Not this time. The reference photos were taken in the early spring…..just sayin’
This is an 10 x 8” fluid acrylic on ClayBord. Yes, I am still painting on this slick surface. Originally I found it to be rather unforgiving – but know I understand more of the characteristics and am able to work with it. I like it! There is no quick with this stuff – it takes
several many many many thin washes to build up the colour. I had to resist just going in with thick paint. Would defeat the purpose of the slippery panel.
