Not long ago I discovered for myself a new name in the art world – famous Australian artist Len Hend. His wet-on-wet technique for acrylic painting looks so enjoyable, that I decided to have fun with some of his video-exercises and create new pages in my Art journal following Len’s tips.
I started with the black under painting using black gesso and let it dry first. Then I used limited palette of student grade acrylic paint, beginning with white. I painted quick and large brush strokes creating a circle, moving from light to dark colors. After that I painted trees and grasses double and triple loading a small round brush. The quote for the page is also written with the small brush and acrylic paint. The page was completely dry when I added some details with the white gel pen.
