The last postmentioned how I like to paint a lot of different subjects. I also enjoy playing around with different mediums and techniques. Watercolor, pastel, acrylic paint, and acrylic monotypes are all interesting to me, and I like to use them in their usual manner, but I also like to experiment and try new ways of adapting them to the surfaces I prefer.
This week I worked on some monotype landscapes, then once they were dry I added more acrylic paint to finish them off, using a palette knife or brush. This was similar to painting a series, since I was repeating colors and some landscape elements along with keeping them all in a horizontal format. When I print the monotypes, I have to work quickly before the acrylic paint dries on my gel plate, so I wasn’t able to photograph any of the process. I was able to finish 9 paintings which are now all available in my Daily Paintworks gallery. Below are a few of the finished pieces—you can see how similar some of them are to one another, yet also how they differ.

All of these paintings were a joy to create, however, I truly struggled with coming up with their titles! Is that ever a problem with you or do titles come easy for you? If you’d like to see the last 3 paintings in this collection, head on over to my Daily Paintworks gallery. Thanks for visiting!
