This is an imaginary landscape painted in acrylics on paper, using washes, glazing, layering, and sgraffito. I was surprised and happy about how much texture and surface interest I was able to achieve -- I've always had a bit of a bias against acrylics but there's a lot going on here that would be impossible to achieve in watercolor or gouache. I've used some of the same techniques in large mixed-media calligraphy pieces in the past.
Hadn't intended to start a renewed drawing-a-day practice but it seems like that's happening on its own. No promises to keep that up, however. I'll be writing some regular posts too, pretty soon, but thought you might like to follow along with what's happening in the studio. Lots of indoors time here in Montreal, still. It's a bit warmer but grey and rainy. The forsythia has bloomed, though, in spite of it all!
