Bird acrylics on cardboardForget-me-not acrylic painting on cotton fabric

These 2 new paintings are 4×4 in, done in acrylics for the “Garden Life” Chunky book pages SWAP at http://atcsforall.com/. “Bird feeder” is painted on a cardboard, “Forget-me-not” – on cotton fabric panel I made myself. I like how with the same medium you can attain different look and effects using different base/surface.

The series of ATCs (2,5×3,5 in) for the ATC “Found at the sea shore” SWAP are also painted with acrylics. This is one of my favorite mediums, because it dries fast and with acrylics you can achieve specific painterly look almost like painting with oils.

1. “Drifted boat” – on watercolor paper

2. “Seashell” – on cotton fabric

3.”Day at the beach” – on gessoed denim fabric

4. “Lighthouse at sunset” – on cardboard.

    All are beautiful! I love how you use the same medium on different substrates. The differences are very interesting, aren’t they. I truly enjoy your art & your gallery on ATC’s For All, also

    Have a creative day!
