I have been experimenting with acrylic fine art spray paints which I mostly use as a background to create a smooth brushstroke free surface. I recently ordered some different colours in the range and this is the result of trying those new colours out.
I like that you have very little control over the application of the paint especially on a small canvas like this one so there is an element of trial and error which often results in happy artistic outcomes! Working in this way keeps the painting loose and spontaneous which I enjoy and which works with my looser more impressionistic style of painting. I knew I wanted a sunset sky fading to twilight and once I had created that backdrop with the spray paint, I then applied acrylic paint with a palette knife in an impasto style to create the mountains which were inspired by a photograph I'd taken of Ben Loyal in the northern highlands earlier this year.
This is a small 4x4 inch canvas within a natural wooden box frame which can be left as it is or painted/stained if you prefer.
