Emphasis was going to be my topic using the people in bright colors. In the end, emphasis was still the theme but using rocks. After exploring the skill of palate knife painting, I discovered a talent in it. I love the way the knife made the rocks seem so realistic.
My media was acrylic. I love acrylic painting. It is something I have been working with for many years. I love painting sunsets so painting the water and sunset int he background was very natural for me. After seeing how good the painting turned out before the bridge was painting in, I decided to save that idea for project six and complete the painting with an extra layer of mountains faded in the background.
The theme would still fit and I could work with adding to the background easily. I used medium to dull out the mountains and make them appear to be in the distance behind the previously painted mountains. I really enjoyed this project and working with the acrylic medium.
I can not wait to start project six and go with my plan of a couple on the bridge.
The following pictures map out the processes and steps I took to complete this project:
