Good Morning. Early cool day here in Lakeland Florida.  Everyone waking up to losing numbers today after power ball drawing last night. I did get one number right. Oh well

back to scratch offs.

  "Calm Atlentic - Melbourne FL. " is a different approach to my art. I had been fascinated by 5"x 5" paintings as of late and reading about  it as a good test of a artist to improve control of the brush and perspective depth. Thought I would give it a shot.

 The panels are hardboard 3/8 in. I covered them with Golden Coarse Ground and then used fluid acrylic for the painting. Once the painting had dried I came back and did some of the detail. Once that dried I sprayed it with a Krylon Varnish. THe pouring was Liquitex pouring medium. One point if you use this medium make sure your painting is raised up and level. It will take roughly 24 hours to dry. The Panels are 5" x5". 

 

 This was fun and took some time but working with 5" panels I think wil lchallenge any artist who hasn't done them before. Have ablessed week and see you soon.
