A kayak moving down the river in the spring is a cool refreshing picture. This was painted on a 16X20 stretched canvas using acrylics. As I become more experienced with acrylic painting there is a luminosity I can see. It is rare to get this much punch with watercolor.
I did have a disaster with plein air painting of a farm scene. It was very warm day with a strong breeze. My acrylics quickly dried despite spraying with water and using a wet palate. I am not giving up on them quite yet, and will try using a retardant when doing plein air since it gets so warm around here.
