Day 12 - Rock On

 
Acrylic on Board 16cm x 16cm
 
This is the second palette knife abstract I did yesterday, which I prefer to the first. It reminds me of the cross-section of a rock. Not sure what type of rock, just one that I've laid eyes on over the years.
It was nice to be one painting ahead to allow for a day off today, but I'm looking forward to getting back to the brushes - or palette knife - tomorrow.

  1. Like that one. I see several animals in it plus a rock.

  2. Another beautiful one, Wendy. Are acrylics your favorite medium? :)

    1. Thanks Alexandra. To be honest I prefer oils to acrylics but like being able to clean up in water with acrylics and it is less fumey.
      However, I am an illustrator at heart and LOVE working in pen and watercolour - I just rarely post much of that side of things as this blog began as an adventure in acrylics.

    1. Ooh yes, I think you are right Sally about the granite.
      Yes, the first two were VERY good for the soul. The third day's attempt - not so much!
