SOLD "Mountain Rhododendrons" Trying Something New. Impasto texturing in acrylic. 16x20 Acrylic on canvas.

Yesterday I painted a snow scene reflective of the weather here in Ann Arbor. Today I tried something different. "Mountain" Rhododendrons" is a study in establishing value planes and in attempting to work some real texture into a painting using acrylics. I think I accomplished both objectives. In this 16x20 study on stretched canvas I used Liquitex heavy body acrylics for most of the painting and Super Heavy Body acrylics for the rhododendrons. I applied the Super Heavy Body paint with a palette knife and a prayer and, with some tweaking, pretty much got the results I'd envisioned. Available for Sale- $75
