Experiment in Paints

Acrylic, 16 x 20 inches matted, "Simply Winter"
                                                                                     Available at DPWs
This was fun and interesting to do, the paint I used were mainly Duochrome paints by Daniel Smith
The luminescent duochrome paint is reflective and the colors change slightly depending on how the light hits it.  So as I was painting, I would turn the canvas and to makes sure the painting had a finished look at every angle.  This was a great way to really learn how to work with these paints.  These paints are usually used to create interesting backgrounds or highlights, so painting this using; Duochrome Adobe, Duochrome Catus Flower, Duochrome Aquamarine, white and black paints only was a challenge.  Perfect painting to do as part of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.
