I’ve said I was going to start a series of local landscape paintings in acrylics, but this first landscape painting showed me that I was going about it in the wrong way. Doing them in acrylics won’t bring the results I want for this series. Even though an acrylic landscape may be beautiful, I want a looser and more abstract style for this particular series.

When painting landscapes in acrylics it gets way too easy for me to get caught up in the details, and I don’t want this series to be those kinds of fiddly paintings where everything has to be just right. I refuse to listen to the perfectionist in my head instead I’m going to show her by using watercolour (or maybe gouache) where I can’t correct as much even if she wants me to.

I stopped before I went too far with this one and I like the way it looks now. I hope you like it too. If you do, please share it.
