Acrylic is such a fabulous medium to create original abstract paintings. Its versatility enables the artist to truly get into an expressionist mode with not only an enormous selection of colour pigments available but also great flexibility in paint consistency. The artist has the flexibility to go from a smooth-running pour for creating flow paintings, to thick body gels that are applied with a palette knife. The sheen of the medium can be controlled with the addition of matt or gloss mediums.
Creating an abstract acrylic painting is about building up layers of colour and texture. As the artist applies each layer the creative expression starts to come to life. The beauty is that unlike traditional oil, acrylic dries fairly quickly, so the artist does not have to stop in mid-flow to let the paint dry. The added benefit with acrylic art is that it does not give off strong fumes, so it's excellent to work within the studio.
Given that acrylic paint originally made an appearance in the 1950s it's very much a medium used with contemporary art, with the likes of David Hockey and Mark Rothko being users. Here at the Arthouse, we are great fans of acrylic paint when creating original paintings, especially when using it in conjunction with other materials to create mixed media artworks.
