PPF and AEDM day 20

 Hi Everyone!

Yesterday we got a nice break in the rain. I was able to go out in the yard and get a bit of sunshine. My spirit is much better. LOL 
Today is day 20 for AEDM and it is PPF. 
Yesterday I worked on a new painting. This is 20x16" acrylics and Brusho. If you don't know about Brusho, it is a pigment that is used mainly in watercolor but I use it with acrylics. 
The affects are pretty amazing and so much fun to use.
After putting down some acrylic paint on the canvas. I used white, paynes gray, and yellow ochre,  Then I sprinkle the Brusho in places I wanted. Now this is the only time I use water on acrylics, I give it a spray directly on the pigments. Then watch them explode. It is so cool.
 
 
I then take a wadded paper towel and make a few dabs.
 
Now just leave it alone and allow it to dry. 
You will end up with a muted colorful background
Of course you can leave it as is or add some paint to it.

Be safe out there and wear a mask

  12. I've only seen photos of Brushos. Never seen any in Kansas. I don't think they have made it this far across country. You have a really unique and amazing beauty. At first, I saw what I thought was a caterpillar. It's a lovely rendition, dear.

    I am glad that you are doing so well and that the sun came out with you. Take care of yourself, hug Elke

  14. I don't have any experience of acrylics and thought they were very bright, intense colours so seeing your muted result is quite enlightening :)

  15. This has a really lovely watercolor look to it Nicole. I have never tried Brushos- or any of the powdered pigments available although it's tempting to try some;) Glad you got some sunshine! Happy PPF!

  17. Glad you feel better today! A little bit of sunshine usually helps. I love the background you created. So colorful, but muted enough to add some paint to it. Have a nice weekend, Nicole!
