sky rocks ocean by molly g

sky rocks ocean

Acrilyc on canvas, 16 x 20 inches. Painted with pallette knives. Brushes make me want to be realistic and I don't have the patience or precision so using pallette knives frees me from that. Inspired by scene on Cape Cod.
a good impressionist painting and love the colours in the rocks

Fabulous, you caught the scene well. I understand , your feelings about the brushes. I always need to put a piece aside before I start to overwork it. You did a great piece.

Really gorgeous work, which gives the feel of a watercolour, although I know it is acrylic! Lovely tones.

for molly g
molly gAfter many years of painting I have come to realize that the thing that interests me most is colour. If I create something that enables the viewer to separate from reality and indulge in shear pleasure by colour and form then I am happy.
I am loving pastels as a medium but I am frustrated that this portrait among other work has been spoiled by using fixative. Even the best stuff tends to darken...
Hi Ian, this portrait really pulls you in, those eyes, really great job, well done! I've used hairspray before now on some of my drawings because I had run out... view answer
