Mini donuts take 3

Continuing on with my personal work from the Lower Florida Keys. After years of working in oils, I am teaching myself, or relearning, how to work in acrylics. These are the newish Open paints from Golden. Liquitex makes their own version. The paints stay wet longer and, while a poor substitute for oils, they allow a certain amount of blending not possible with regular acrylics. You can mix open and regular acrylics, switching back and forth depending on how fast you want the paint to dry.

Here I've reworked the head and hat shape, painted in the flags and a bit of the shed in the background.

For a look at my commercial work:

  1. Hi Cathy,

    Is the lady in the hat anyone we know? Your blog is great! Hope you enjoyed the super moon -- we sure did. Now I understand the song "Moon over Miami." :-) Have fun the rest of the month. We're back in AA.
