moai 03 Aug 2021

Painted on a 10 x 8 canvas. This was a challenge and caused the space for the water to shrink. I think for such a small size it turned pretty nice.



WOW Moai
You got new colours?
This is lovely

I did not get any new colors I just used an acrylic retarder then added the blue and green. I had to only cover the top at first cause it dries too fast.

That’s we I need to get retarder that may help me causes it makes the colours so bright

I use Handy Art retarder from amazon. It is reasonably priced and comes in a 32 fl oz plastic jar. I then if Bob uses liquid white add a thin coat of thin inexpensive white paint. I blend the colors into the white paint, but only do the part of the painting I am currently painting. The retarder helps when things dry out, lioke with reflections and does not run like water does.
