Day 22 of 31 Days of Art:
Tried the Golden Open Acrylics

I finally broke open the Golden Open Acrylics and painted on the abstract panel.  I decided it needed more definition and went with a more map-like feeling.  This is still an experimentation panel and I don't like it so well, but on the other hand I'm learning a lot.   I want to try use these paints more before I give a review.  Here's where this painting panel has come from:

Then I primed it red.

His ego needed deflating.

But then he was boring.
So I primed it red again.

I decided to make it more map like
 and less landscape like.  

The painting is not better 
but I am having fun playing.

One thing I did like about the Open Acrylics was that I could scrub a thin layer of paint into the canvas panel and then wipe away areas, make some areas darker like I used to do a long time ago with oil/turpentine washes.   It creates a good way to do an underpainting to show darks and lights.

I am having fun. I had a morning painting session and worked on the map-like painting. Added some pieces and repainted some areas, so we'll see.
