For a long time now, I have been obsessing over combining different shades of blue, green and pink into a painting. I’ve told myself that I need to explore other colours, but last weekend I treated myself to using these colours together again. How can you deny phthalo blue, teal and magenta together on canvas?
These two paintings were made using acrylic paints. The paints are a mixture of Mont Marte Dimension Acrylic paints, Jo Sonja’s Acrylic paints, and Jo Sonja’s Flow Medium. Always some flow medium.
If you’ve never heard of Jo Sonja’s Flow Medium, then I suggest you read the blog post I’ve written here. If you find acrylic paint hard to manipulate on the canvas, then you should go see what it’s all about.
Credit to me, I did try not using flow medium, but it didn’t last very long. The white paint is the only colour that doesn’t have any of the Jo Sonja’s Flow Medium added to it, and you can see how much white paint there is in these two paintings…
If you follow @moments.bycharlie on Instagram, then you may have already seen these images in our Instagram Stories, along with the progress photos along the way. If I get an opportunity this week, I will upload the progress pictures of these two paintings onto the blog as well.
Oh and texture?! Did I mention I love texture?
Until next time.
