When painting in acrylic, I like to take advantage of the fluidity of the paint, resulting in a loose, watercolor-type style. Various areas of the painting are then enhanced using multiple layers of glazing, giving a depth and richness to the work. My fascination with the human form is embodied (pun intended!) in this work. When painting in acrylic, I use only 3 tubes of color: red, blue and yellow. All the colors are mixed from these three. When the acrylic paint is applied on the canvas, something almost “magical” happens. Because of the large amount of water used, the colors mix to form new colors, and spread, not always staying in their intended place. I have little control over the process, so at times I will literally “watch the paint dry” to see the developing colors.
