Fluorescent acrylic paint

A bit of fun with surplus paint
02/04/2020
I required some fluorescent red and yellow acrylic paint to complete a painting for a friend - needless to say I needed less than half a tea spoon in total and could only buy some chunky tubes! So what to do with the rest - yup - playtime!!
As it was water based acrylic ( all acrylic might be water based - never used the stuff before) I laid down a wash then went to work with red ink, black ink, the acrylic and water colour as needed.I was happy with the result - a nice range of textures and a feeling of light. It is powerful paint and should only be used sparingly - but great fun in these challenging times
Keep painting - and remember if it all goes horribly wrong - it's only a piece of paper
