On My Mind...

January 26, 2015

I've had the artistic bug for a few weeks now. I have been scouring Pinterest for ideas and inspiration almost non-stop. My usual medium is watercolor, but lately I have wanted to try out acrylic. Anyone have any experience with using acrylic???

Here are some of my top inspiration pieces...

This piece has so much color, but also has deep grey that balances it. I love the technique - the artist used soft strokes for the muted color sand bold strokes with the bright color.

I love the colors in this! I also like that it is at the seashore. :)

Abstract isn't for everyone, but I really like the abstract landscapes. The blues in this painting are beautiful, and it could be an ocean, a lake, mountains - whatever you want!

Another abstract landscape, but more autumn colors. This one is no longer available, but I like some of the others by this artist on Etsy.

One of these days I'll get the brushes out...in the meantime I'll keep eyeing up these talented artists!
