Re: psychadelic dream acrylic painting

Nice colors! A few of them seem transfixed by the coffee pot next to the painting It reminds me of Peter Max's work, well done!

Re: psychadelic dream acrylic painting

I love this one!!!

Out of interest, how do you get the lines so sharp? Do you use any masking film or just good brush technique?

Good luck for the exhibition!

Re: psychedelic dream acrylic painting

Here i am sir astronautf. Haven't been spending as much time on Wetcanvas, but i do try to peek in every few days to look at the w3rk and occasionally comment if something moves me. Which this piece most certainly has done. very slick painting my man, and i mean that in the best of ways. Good to hear this piece is going into a show. tis one that should be seen. beautifully crafted, interchangeableness. Great painting!

Re: psychedelic dream acrylic painting

I'm realling digging this one...the colors, the crispness, the repetition, the face that appears to be endlessly laughing uncontrolably....I think it's all grand...even the trippy felling it kicks into me!
Whatever you do please don't destroy it...I'll take it if you ever feel like getting rid of it...
