Acrylic on watercolor paper. 18" wide x 24" high.
Also posted in Abstract/Contemporary Art.

Technique is watered down acrylic in layers with rubber cement for frisket. Usually I use watercolor paint but am thinking of trying this technique on canvas in acrylic.

I like the depth you have acheived in this.

Depth is one of the things I try to capture in these paintings. I've found the best way to achieve depth is with darker color.

I've been looking more into this technique a bit too. I learned here of another less-odorous alternative to rubber cement - liquid latex like used for mold making. seems to wok great (but still a bit of amonia smell)

I work with the glue in front of an open window and turn on a fan. I like the rubber cement because it peels off so easily.

I'll look into the liquid latex.

I like the mixture of colors on this. Very well done. Reminds me of a watercolor pour.

Someone was previously asking about using acrylics in watercolor technique. That technique is what I'm currently experimenting with. So far, I find the "hue" paint colors are better for transparency. In the future I will also try the flow medium.
