Christmas Ball Impressions

Sometimes I just have to switch gears and let the crazy out!!  I LOVE rich, vibrant colors - and these Christmas ornaments offer me the perfect opportunity to revel in the bold!  I am using my acrylics for this for a couple of reasons.  First, I am painting presents and want them to dry quickly.  Second, pushing more impressionistic, I like the quick, thick layering I can achieve with heavy body acrylics.  My favorite brand?  Liquitex, although I do use an almost equal portion of Golden.  For something like this, I dive into my vast supply of unusual tubes.  It gives me a chance to really play with the fun colors.  After all these years, I still fall back to my roots of the limited palette and mixing everything I need.  Tonight - I am pushing myself to just play with paint!  SO fun!!  Painting number 1789 in 1789 days.
