It’s been a while since my last painting session.
A lot longer since my last painting session using acrylic paint.
So I decided to pick up my palette knife again.
I didn’t really have a plan for what I was going to paint, I just wanted to use the medium again.
So I spent a some minutes figuring out what to make, and came up with kind of an abstract flower bouquet.
First I used some different gradients of blue for the background, using a palette knife to kind of scrape the paint onto the canvas.
I wanted to make the impression on light coming in from the right side, so I used lighter and lighter tones when working my way across the canvas.
That being done I kept using the palette knife to add a vase with some flowers on top.
This is how it looked:
I think the painting turned out well.
One thing could be better, though.
The red and yellow colours of the flowers are a bit flat. Simply because I struggle to blend acrylic paint in a satisfying way.
It just won’t come together properly.
Anyway, it was really nice getting back to the medium, and there will definitely be some more sessions in the following days.
