Acrylic on watercolour paper
I’m about ready to make a return to acrylics. I want a fairly ‘flat’ finish, so I opted to use what I had left of a collection of Solver Scenic Flat Acrylic. These paints are (were) favoured by signwriters. The colours are loud and have a high UV tolerance, and I thought they would be ideal for my style of painting. To my dismay I have found out that these paints aren’t made anymore. Darn! What now?
Time to re-group.
For my first painting I will work with Matisse paints. I have used them before and what I particularly like about them is their strong range of Australian colours. They are available in ‘Structure’ and ‘Flow’, the latter having gouache-like qualities, the former having traditional acrylic gloss-like qualities.
Time to experiment.
