Acrylics aren’t so bad after all. They are perfect for scumbling layers of glazes over textured surfaces in the new Street Art Series that focuses on the geometry and patterns I find in sidewalks and streets. The Street Art Series will be introduced at the exhibit Iron Roads at Main Street Gallery this fall marking the second year that the Ironman Triathlon will be held in Cambridge, Maryland.
I thought this was a circle of turquoise glass imbedded in the cement. Upon closer examination it turned out to be a plastic water bottle turned upside down in a hole in the cement. The question in my mind is “Why was the hole in the center of the white triangle?”
Watering Hole: Acrylic on canvas 12″ x 16″
Limited palette: Ultramarine Blue, Quinacridone Burnt Orange, Perylene Red, Yellow Ochre and both black gesso and white gesso. (I have a very odd selection of acrylic paints to use up before I contemplate purchasing more.)
