Re: Coleus, demo, Acrylic inks.

That's incredible! I think I'm going to adapt the technique with oils. Glazing is a lot of fun. Love the colors. beautiful piece of work.

Re: Coleus, demo, Acrylic inks.

Thank you so much everyone ..... I keep forgetting about this old thread - it's so nice that you take the time to appreciate it

Delmus - I'm honoured! If you try this with oils, I do hope you share it here - would love to see the results

Re: Coleus, demo, Acrylic inks.

Fabulous painting. You are a master at these inks. I would love to try them.
Keep showing us "how it's done."

Re: Coleus, demo, Acrylic inks.

Thank you for your wonderful demo. Your use of vibrant colors is just as beautiful, if not more beautiful, than the original photo. Your use of inks has given me the courage to go that route with my paintings, which add more perspective and character. Kathleen, Sarasota, FL

Re: Coleus, demo, Acrylic inks.

Maureen, I guess this is a few days later!!
But, had to tell you, I was thrilled to see someone honor the peasant, COLEUS!
It really should be the Painter's Flower, because it is the leaves that have all the colors! This was a fascinating demo. Hope you sold long ago for mucho money...
Thanks for sharing, is Very Beautiful ......

Thanks again for looking and commenting on this old thread!

Willy - nice to have a plant appreciated! - they are indeed, beautiful! I think it's still in a folder somewhere

Kathleen - welcome to the forum and to WC! - if I can help, just send me a message!

Maria, thanks .... I'll have to think of another plant for a demo again!

Re: Coleus, demo, Acrylic inks.

Thank you Donna, Steve and Brigitte ....... Steve, do give it a try - either in Acrylics or if the subject is plant-based, here in Florals/Botanicals.
