Windy Day


"Windy Day" Acrylic on Canvas - Mary Maki Rae (c)2016

****************************************
More experimenting -!
This time using a new technique with a "Pouring Medium".

To 1/4 cup of the Medium  - I added 1 teaspoon of acrylic paint of one chosen color. For the small painting shown above - I used Six different Colors in Six different cups.
I then poured the paint one by one onto a "Wet" background - Which results in a Soft - Floating - active type of effect-!

When dry - I added a soft touch of detail with my "Sponge Technique".
I could Add more detail with flowers or such - But I like it just the way it is right now - open to the imagination-!



"A Meadow of Trees" Acrylic on Canvas
Mary Maki Rae 2016(c)

*********************************
When pouring the Medium onto a "Dry" Background - I used just one color - letting the paint dry very firm - just touching at the top - this created the image shown above - of a "meadow of trees".
Then using my sponge I added two greens and a blue to indicate Leaves and grass.
I'm now going to paint in some Flowers and Ferns to Brighten the scene-!
