My Second Day at the Gwen Fox Workshop

"Taos in Living Color"

 
Gwen said she would be working in acrylic, so I decided to use the medium. I want to get more proficient with them because I want to combine them with collage and do abstracts.
 
Gwen suggested that I paint with acrylic on 300 lb. cold press paper that I first gessoed. I use the three fluid acrylics that Gwen had on the supply list that are quite transparent and make a wide range of colors. I included one tube of Titanium Buff. They were perfect to suggest the typography and colors of Taos.
 
I created a semi-abstract painting depicting  the deep slashing canyon carved by the Rio Grande, the eroded sandstone mountains, the plateaus, and manmade adobe structures.

Bonjour,

Une très belle déclinaison de couleurs. Je suis admirative de vous voir travailler à l'acrylique...
Je suis lente et j'aurais beaucoup de difficulté compte tenu du séchage !
Très jolie peinture.

Gros bisous ♡
