Butterfly Mixed Media Painting Artist Chris Hobel 8x8" on box canvas
for saleSome paintings seem to take a long time to complete even years, this was one such evolution. Its good to step back both physically and mentally from a painting for as long as it takes. Photographing the stages in a painting is a good learning tool. Often we continue on too long because we are just enjoying the process of painting. The time to stop can be after a few deft strokes, sometimes luck, sometimes genius, I guess the art critics and history make that judgement.
Step 1 Washy Acrylic and Black Ink
Step 2 Addition of ripped paper mono print found in my stash
Step 3 More washy blue/purple. Transparent washy white painted over the print and graphics, more white lines for contrast and addition of more black graphics.
The final painting at the top has more opaque white lines added

acrylic and ink painting on Canvas by Chris Hobel
Contact me for sale of the original
Painting TechniqueI used a water colour resist medium, masking fluid with a fine bush to create the "white areas" followed by washy transparent acrylic layers with a large brush.After I removed the final resist layer I added thick and thin hard edge ink lines with a fine brush.This is a fun technique to try.
