Sometimes, when I am playing in the studio, I will start doing something that is intuitive to me and realize it is a pretty exciting technique that maybe not everyone has caught onto yet. That is where this mini-tutorial comes from. Enjoy it! Share it with friends! Let me know what you think!
Every artist has their own unique process or technique for painting. Mine is crazy. I am serious. Most of my paintings go through multiple stages and layers before finally landing at a good place to stop. I hesitate to say finished, because I don’t really know that they every really are. My process mirrors my life. It is a continual cycle of change, learning, holding, experiencing and releasing.
One technique I use often in my process is veiling. I add a ghostly layer of paint over top of work that is already laid down to obscure it somewhat but not entirely. I have had questions about veiling through my Facebook page. So I thought I would share a little tutorial on a couple of ways to veil with acrylics. Hope you enjoy it. Would love to hear from you if you found it helpful.
