Fall Leaves on Flat Creek

Fall Leaves on Flat Creek, 16x20" acrylic on canvas
Every so often I return to test the waters of acrylic medium.  I struggle with acrylics, it's the plastic texture I think.  Perhaps I'm using old paints that are separating and stringy.  Whatever the case, there are elements I love about this piece: the light reflecting on the water surface and the bold colors of the leaves which are what inspired this piece.  It will be nice to revisit this with oils for more fun.  Happy painting.

This painting is currently available at Atelier Gallery Asheville.
