Atomic Ranch

midcentury

Still playing around with acrylic paints and mediums.

I’ve mostly been painting on paper (printmaking) and a paper for acrylics that I found – not sure which I prefer yet.  I found the acrylic paper in square format – which I like – but it has a definite canvas texture (which isn’t bad) but I’m thinking I prefer the smooth surface of the printmaking paper so far.  I’m still using both for now though.

Also, today, I started a painting on a cradled panel (that’s been primed for acrylics).  The super smooth surface accepts the paint readily and its especially nice if you like to use a brayer to apply paint.  I’ve been having issues applying paint to paper using the brayer – so this was a nice change.  The painting is still ‘in process’ but maybe I’ll have something to show soon.

I completed a few others (on paper) over the weekend…’Atomic Ranch’, above, is one of those.
