Acrylic Dry Brushing


Hello Friends,

I tried something new the other day, the same day I did my acrylic sea turtle journal cover, in fact, but these mushrooms were done by “dry-brushing” acrylic paint. I painted on a piece of Aqvarelle Arches 140 lb. hot pressed watercolor paper instead of canvas. I normally don’t like hot pressed paper for watercolors, because it is smooth. I like watercolor paper that has more “tooth” or texture to it. But I have had this block of paper for years and I mostly use it for experimenting or scratch paper. However, I liked painting acrylics onto it.

So this was part of my exploring I am going to be doing this year which is always fun even if I don’t care for the results. I didn’t really “plan” this painting or even draw in pencil first. I just did it spontaneously, but these are my favorite blues to work with. There’s got to be blue and pink mushrooms and white butterflies somewhere in the world, right? Most likely that would be where Alice went when she followed the white rabbit down the rabbit hole.

Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
