Using molding paste creates an interesting textured base for a painting. The paste is applied with a palette knife and other instruments to get the desired patterns and effects. I use a large brush for painting with heavy body acrylics. The contrast between the light earth tones and the deep reds had to be balanced to compliment each other. The black added the drama to this composition while the texture added interest and depth.
Heavy body acrylics. A final coat of Golden UVLS in gloss protects the colors and the painting.
