Whimsical Birds in Fluorescent Pink
Whimsical Birds or drawing with Golden High Flow Acrylics. Patti Brady, Director of Working Artist Program at Golden Artist Colors, designed this project. The project was for the NAEA conference held in San Diego and designed to showcase High Flow Acrylics and using Molding Paste as ground to paint on. I thought it would also be a fun project for students new to painting, introducing them to the various options in viscosity. A wonderful but simple exercise to get the creative juices flowing.
Golden High Flow Acrylics are designed for airbrushing, pen & ink, refillable makers, pouring, glazing and painting. The High Flows are high-intensity, flowing colors made with opaque and transparent pigments. They are formulated virtually clog-free utilizing 100% acrylic polymer emulsions and lightfast pigments, excluding the fluorescents.
Light Molding Paste and Fluid Indian Yellow Hue were mixed together to create the background and then applied with a palette knife to the painting boards (7 to 3 ratio for the mix).
Allow background to dry and then start painting.
There’s always one odd bird in the flock. LOL. Student accidentally painted on their crackle paste board, which was for the pear painting, but it still works and looks equally as good. 🙂
