Marsh Morning

 

Marsh Morning

6X12  Acrylic on Canvas 

Maybe I should have called this: Try something new Monday?  

I used acrylic which isn't my normal medium.  Most of the time I paint in oil.  I wanted to see what I could do with acrylic and loved that it dried so fast.

With this painting I wanted to show the crisp morning air rising over the marsh.  The colors I used show the soft light and atmosphere at this time of day.

  1. I think you did beautifully with the acrylics! Nice, loose handling! The fact that they dry so fast is the very reason I love them...

      I will use acrylics again for the very fact you stated, they dry fast!

    Thank you for your kind comment.
    This experimenting with other mediums has been fun! But think it is time to get back to oils.
    Happy Painting,
