Only 1 1/2 weeks late this time.:clear:
8x10 acrylic inks on paper

Tried the "rubbing-out" method with acrylics this time. 3 colors plus white, 8x10 on "acrylics" paper.It's a bit of a mess- I think I'll stick with oils if I try that method again.

I love the numbers, I saved them myself but didnt get around to it. Those acrylic inks really glow.
I have not heard of the rubbing out method, is it just removing the wet paint to reveal the light. It worked beautifully on the timber walls.

Bright, simple, and childlike..... :clap: you really Got the shapes of the individual numbers.... it's made of metal and the numbers are cut out and raised....good job! I don't know what "rubbed out" theory is either, but if that's a rusted blue metal roof, I'd say you got it! Thanks for being part of my week.....:wave:

Wendy, wow! Love the numbers collection and the old barn is great, too. What I think I would do if the barn were mine, is to use black India ink and make a few linear marks. The acrylics should be okay underneath if thin enough.

Love your numbers, the colours are great. I have to check out the "rubbing out" method, not sure what is involved.

Right. It's also called wiping-out. Here (https://www.google.ca/search?q=Bernie+Fuchs+oil+rub+out+technique&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiJgNjfsIzUAhWm1IMKHXdmCKwQsAQIPg&biw=1252&bih=604#tbm=isch&q=bernie+fuchs+painting) is an artist/illustrator who used it a lot.
