Got a good start on the golden glow peace sign tree painting. For this one, I started with a 16" x 20" canvas and used my new Golden open acrylics. The background went on very similar to oils. I then wanted to get the main branches & some blossoms in while the paint was good & wet. You can't really simulate that after the fact. Worked for hours. Time for a break. The open acrylics will stay wet through the day and can even be reactivated. I was planning on some dragonflies as well, however, and I may want the paint to have set for those (easier to do the transparent wings).
