Bright Irises

Acrylics on Cotton Canvas

I have absolutely loved painting in this bold, impasto style. The strong colours were applied as part of the underpainting and then the lighter colours were added as the top layer with parts of the underpainting peeping through. It is an exciting way to paint, and acrylics, with their fast-drying properties allow you to work in this way. Big brush and bold application of colour are key.
