|"Rhythm III" 24" X 24" gallery wrapped watercolor by April M Rimpo|
The left painting was done on a gallery wrapped canvas, so I opted to use acrylic paint. I find acrylic works better on canvas than watercolor.
For the cool color scheme painting I made a gallery wrapped paper platform. Since it was paper, I used watercolor for this piece; I do enjoy the flow of watercolor on paper. To create the lightest blues and grays I mixed darker watercolor pigments with white gouache. Both paintings are varnished with an acrylic varnish so neither has to be framed under glass.
