acrylic on canvas
This was a really fun painting to do. I didn't do any detailed brushwork and really thickened the paint up with some acrylic gels.
My acrylic brand of choice (Winsor & Newton) has apparently been discontinued by my closest art supply store, and the other nearby stores don't sell it. I think I might have to start ordering paint in bulk anyway, since I go through a ton of it for these impasto paintings. I use almost an entire container of acrylic gel medium for each piece.
