Some New Work in Nuetrals

I've been experimenting with layering acrylic paint and scraping through, creating texture and line with a minimum of colors.  You can see some pieces I did about a year ago here.  Mostly I've done these pieces as technique demonstrations, but thought I'd try to take it a bit further.  Here is a video on some of the techniques I'm using:

And a few of the finished works:




You can see the whole collection at Jane Davies Art Gallery.  And learn the techniques at my workshops in Gloucester, Whidbey IslandRhinebeck (OMEGA), and Dillman's Bay Resort in Wisconsin.

    1. Yes. Regular rubbing alcohol. It seems to come in a couple of different strengths, but they both work. Also, baby wipes work pretty well. Hand sanitizer too.
