Autumn Mountains, Landscape, Daily Painting

"Autumn Mountains"
14 x 18 inches
Acrylic on canvas

This was painted for a workshop lesson. The technique here is to use the paint very thin, like watercolors on canvas. (This approach has been around longer than watercolor canvases!)
The idea is to get vibrant and glowing colors. The advantage is that framing is easier (no glass) than watercolors, and you can work larger on a stronger support. You can easily make corrections also, as white paint covers the mistakes and corrections are painted over the top.
When acrylics are used so thin, they are varnished to seal the paint. Although they are still more permanent than Watercolors, it is possible that the thin paint could rub off if it is not sealed.
