Over the edge

One of my latest acrylic on paper paintings.

Rembrandt Acrylic paint (Talens) on Hahnemühle 350 g/sm Fineart Acryl paper. 23 x 42 cm. Intended as book illustration for my forthcoming book.

The somewhat coarse structure of the paper goes hand in hand with the excellent qualities of the Royal Talens ‘Rembrandt’ acrylic paint. The high pigment content can give you deep colors. I use a combination of highly diluted paint and loaded brushes. With layers of retouching varnish I get the deeper glowing effects that are commonly more characteristic of oil paint glazings.
