Acrylic Painting on Canvas-Coffee Love
For years I have painted with acrylics – but never on canvas. This was my first official leap into acrylic painting on canvas, and is my usual method I just jumped in head first. Freehand drawing the coffee cup and grabbing my favorite colours, the result was acceptable and I had a lot of fun working the background. It hangs happily in my kitchen now – right above my favorite spot to have a cup of coffee with a friend.
12″x12″ Acrylic on Stretched Canvas
3 things learned:
- If painting in light translucent colours – don’t use a dark line to draw your design (duh!)
- Add extender to your paint if you want to work in multiple shades into an area-it keeps the quick drying acrylic paint wetter longer for blending
- Finish off an outline easily with a paint marker for a fun relaxed finish
