Using acrylic markers

acrylic paintings, contemporary art

A strange, new departure for me (okay, not strange for most people), but:

Buying canvas (rather than stretching it myself) and using acrylic markers (rather than finger painting, which is my usual method) — something about those combinations… well, ┬áthe result is a patchwork style that’s a little off the grid for me. And maybe way too familiar to others.

This one is probably unfinished. No title even. And why are these so small here? Sorry for that.

These two, titled “What the Astronaut Saw” — belong together as far as I’m concerned. But probably unfinished. I’m inordinately proud of the sheep on the right though.
