This is a 22 x 32 inch acrylic on paper with a few acrylic paint skins and touches of hand painted collage paper. C&Cs most appreciated.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/10-Apr-2014/117702-first_light_aceo.jpg

AWESOME! Ive been toying with the cruciform shape and I can appreciate this one's dimensions and simple color palette. The touches of blue in the center really draw me in. Love it.

So glad you liked it and commented, Rachel. I was beginning to think it was a dog and no one had the nerve to tell me. Kay

Very nice, I noticed this last night but didn't take time to comment. It caught my eye right off. Cruciform was the first thought and a well done image using the cruciform format was the second. I enjoy the choice of colors a lot. The touches of blue are great and add a touch of cold to the otherwise warm palette.

The way that you have captured light is very engaging. Really subtle, and tasteful.

you have a delicate touch in this in your use of light and the blue....Beautifully done.

I like the strong composition, the dark contrast that gives it depth, palette and texture. It speaks to me in a way that makes me say, yes, that is a piece that I would be happy to have done!

Are the acrylic paint skins dried acrylic from other work, or that you have purposely created, to apply as collage?

Thank you Dave, David, Keith and Darisc. Darisc, I created the paint skins from my pallet paper. The paint builds up, I coat it with a clear medium and when dry, peel it up. Amazing what little gems come from this. The rust on the cross piece of the cruciform are deli paper that was painted with leftover paint from paint brush, then I stamped it with a homemade stamp. It is very thin and adheres nicely.
