Miniature Painting – Beautiful Evening 

Beautiful Evening (2.5 x 3.5 inches; acrylics) 
My latest painting was completed with Liquitex Acrylic Paints. I find the Liquitex brand to be one of the best acrylic paints on the market. I am enjoying the acrylic experience! This one is a personal favorite.

Miniature Painting – Mountain Stream 

I painted this miniature on July 11, 2017. This miniature was completed with Liquitex acrylic paints on black canvas panel. I’m very pleased with how it turned out! 

Here’s a quick video of the painting process for this acrylic painting…

I like how Sterling Edwards and Tony Couch paint. They are both transparent watercolor artists and have put out several books and videos on how to paint with watercolor. Their paintings are very colorful, and the painting techniques they use create paintings that do not look overworked. The brushwork is loose and the paintings have a glow to them. 

I am practicing some new techniques to loosen up my paintings a la Sterling Edwards and Tony Couch. I’m not real happy with the rocks, but it is practice after all!  The watercolor techniques Sterling Edwards and Tony Couch use are simple, but timing is critical. I find myself forgetting certain steps of the process and that does affect the final outcome. Overall, I am pleased with the final results of this practice painting!
