New acrylic painting

"Opabin Imaginings", 12 x 16", acrylic on paper

This is the demonstration painting that I did at the FCA show on Saturday. It is based on my plein air oil study from last September at Lake O'Hara (see post Sept 27, 2008 for the study). I chose an unusual colour triad that I just love (also in post Feb 20, 2009) of orange, yellow-green and violet. I used Golden Fluid Acrylics and worked quickly; the entire painting took less than one hour. That is the result of having a great plan and sticking to it, and not getting bogged down in the details.

love this color scheme... I'm amazed you did this in an hour even with the advanced plan. No doubt that is what makes it work so well. Nice!
