Floral Acrylic Painting

Good afternoon friends!  We have made it to the weekend, yay! 🙂  Today I have this quick 11 x 14 acrylic painting on canvas – a simple, semi-abstract floral design on an aqua blue background.

The background was coated with Faber-Castell gelatos and DecoArt Media fluid acrylic paint in various shades of blue with water sprayed to form drips running down the canvas.  A baby wipe helped lift out some paint in areas to bring back sections of light.

Once dry, flowers were painted using Liquitex heavy body paints in reds, maroon and yellow, and wispy stems trailed in green.  The heavy body paint left a wonderful raised texture with peaks in the petals.

Materials & Supplies List:

That’s all there is to this painting – there was no sketch and no plan. It is fun to just jump in and let your subconscious make the decisions as you grab whatever materials call to you at the moment and let your hand decide where to take the paint!

Have a fantastic, creative weekend everyone!  I’ll be back on Monday with more art and a new process video!  🙂
