Yes, it's the interaction between that first coat of paint and the foil metallic surface that presents interesting inspirations, as with the above face. It does produce some interesting opportunities, as seen below, but then sometimes not. That's the fun part about doing acrylics on foil, the extracting that initial impression and bringing it to the fore. But like I've said beforehand, I'm very new at this, and trying to find my niche in this fantastic path.
Lost Orphans: 40mm x 50mm. This is another example of just letting the paint interact with the foil to "create" the image. I've simply brought it to the fore and added a couple of colours to make it interesting.
But I really do like portraits because I love looking at faces, and I am really here trying to improve on it as best I can when I can. This is a portrait attempt I did at the beginning of my acrylic on foil explosion that made me realise perhaps I have a chance at this.
Beautiful lady: 55mm x 90mm. Lots of things now with this that I didn't see at the time. But I am still pleased with the blending. But I noticed that the colour darkens when it dries. Could it be the basecoat coming through and causing this?
