I’m finishing this week with a big painting under my belt.

I have been slowly working my way through my French countryside inspiration (that’s dating back to last summer; that’s how slowly!)

I’ve fairly recently discovered Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylics and I. AM. IN. LOVE. I love the texture of them when painting with it and matt feel.

I love using acrylics for textural painting as you can layer up colours and textures with different mark making tools which frees up the painting process and allows for some unexpected bonuses (happy accidents!)

Although it is big and took some time (and many layers) I really enjoyed the process and love the finished piece – Patchwork Countryside.

Off for a G & T now – wishing you a great weekend.
