Flowers and Floral landscapes. Florals lend themselves to texture. In the acrylic painting system everything cleans up with water. This opens up a number of possibilities for manipulating the paint and media with tools that would be too much of a mess with oils or other types of paint. I like using baking cake decorating tools to manipulate paint. With floral subjects the pastry bag is used much more as it would be used for cakes – to create flowers! But instead of whipped cream and custard, I’m piping acrylic paint and media. The acrylic gel media dry clear, which also provides for different approaches in pastry bag painting as opposed to actual cake decorating.
