Here are some paintings by Laura Newinsky, "I love the flexibility of the paint, the way it stands up like oils, its smooth 'fluidness' and without the clumpiness of most acrylics."

Well I will be brave, and add my first work with these new paints...
"Fox in the Grass" 10 by 8 inches on canvas. This was a good place to start, and get a feel for the product. I have got to say I am very happy with how much fun it is to work with. thanks for looking.

Hi Jennifer :)
I use interactive almost exclusively, in fact I encouraged an art shop to stock it, since I was so enthusiastic about it! Then I bought it flat out...
I actually don't use the properties of interactive fully(mostly for the backgrounds), but I make paint skins with it, love the wonderful rich ink like qualities when diluted, most of my paintings are knifework, and interactive works fine with the impasto gel..
I cannot show the paintskins here yet, they will be in 2 competitions coming up. They are a surprise...

Here's one I just finished, painted on 40cm square canvas.

Gnu - love the abstract qualities in your work. I love painting with a palette knife, too. If you get a chance, post your paint skins too!
Nina - love the reflections in the water. It's fall foliage season in the US, and this reminds me of New Hampshire!

Hi Jennifer,
Finished my first painting with Atelier Interactive. It was a fun experience to reactivate the paint with the unlocking spray and blend back into touch dry paint.

First pet portrait. Done with Interactives and a touch of old acrylics. They mix beautifully. Photo and painting here.

Wow! you really captured the expression and personality of the pup!

Here are my paintskins, the first 2 abstract, the 3rd landscape, semi abstract.


04-20-2010, 08:21 PM
These are great! I've yet to try paint skins. How did you make yours?

04-20-2010, 11:41 PM
Thanks Jennifer :)
I use impasto medium as clear initial layer on glass. once the rest completely dry, I remove using a piece of plastic plumbing pipe, cling film and baking paper. I store with cling film both sides of the skin to protect it and roll up in baking paper(siliconised)

Love these!!!!!

Thanks Jennifer! Here are two more just finished:

"The Old Pump" 18x24 linen The pump is in my mom's front yard, but everything else is from my imagination. Tho I did go pick a small stem of hollyhocks to help me get the close up flowers better.


"Jai" 16x20 canvas. Jai is a male Sumatran tiger at the PHoenix zoo. Grant Brummet, photographer has graciously granted me permission to use his wonderful photograph of Jai. You can see it and and Grant's other work at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/grantbrummett/4134842422/in/set-72157614936305958/

You can see a pretty good set of WIP photos for both of these on my facebook page. I'll leave them up for a few more days before I take them down.

Nice! I like how you took artistic license with your mom's pump. The WIP on your blog is very good too!

Thanks Jennifer! Here's a little one I did yesterday of Bella, my mom's aging German Shepherd. 4x6 on paper
