I love watercolour but recently I've been inspired to get my acrylics out again. I've been playing in my sketchbook journal with layers of texture and paint and having fun with silver acrylic! Silver acrylic, where have you been all my life?!
I'm really enjoying layering and acrylic is great for this because it dries so quickly and lends itself to holding a texture too. Each page goes on its own journey from the first layer to the last. Like a real journey, there are moments when it's possible to make mistakes in direction and other moments when the route is smooth and pleasing. One of these days I'll remember to record it so that I can show you the process.
Some of the layers have writing, pourings from my heart and quite private so I cover them with a layer of paint. Still there, still felt.
These pages above are scanned so they don't show the shininess of the metallic paint but if you imagine the light areas are shiny you get the idea.
Now where are my pots of glitter?.....
