VICTORIA BRIDGE RELFLECTIONS
Paintings are not like children... you can like some more than others. And I have to say - I really like this one. I'm very happy with the colours and the composition. Today's painting depicts another view of the Victoria Bridge in downtown St. Marys (also featured on day 1 of the challenge).
For this painting I used Golden OPEN acrylics, which are a slower drying acrylic paint. My painting from "day 7" was the first time I used the OPEN acrylics.. and I think I'm in love. I can more easily work in an alla prima (wet into wet) approach... which I am finding gives a more fresh, loose look. I have been using a very limited palette (didn't want to buy too many tubes in case I didn't like the paints). I am currently using titanium white, naphthol red, ultramarine blue, phthalo blue, and hansa yellow.
