A Cats Life

Figurative on Canvas with Acrylics

Acrylic paint is a nice material with lots of possibilities. You can paint very precieze with acrylics, but along my path of creative exploring I notice that I don’t feel the need to control the paint completely. Some unpredictable moves make me enjoy the proces of creating even more. I like to thin down my paint and I like to experiment with special extraordinary colors, shades and iridescent paint. And I even like to do an acrylic pouring once in a while.

As my journey is moving along, I notice that I like to add more and more media to my work and that brings me to Mixed Media and Materie Schilderen. But sometimes I just enjoy playing with acrylics only, either with a brush or with a palet knife.

Most of my artwork is sold. I sell through Etsy, a worldwide platform for selling unique handmade items. Go and have a look at my current offers.

Acrylics and other materials

I only use quality materials.
My paintings are painted with Golden and Amsterdam Experts Acrylics, and other various professional brands. This paint is highly pigmented and the colors are bright and deep and they will last.

The canvasses I use are all stretched on a quality stretcher. And the panels (canvas boards) I use are from a fine quality, not the cheap ones.
I always paint the sides of a stretched canvas or boards, sometimes in one color, other times in the colors of the painting. You do not need to frame the artwork, but framing in a cradled frame will give the painting a whole new dimension.

I varnish all my artwork for protection and perhaps for a little shine. Some of my artwork is varnished in a Matt finish.
