Unicorns Graze Here

My newest little acrylic started out bright purple and blue, and I had no idea where it was going to go. It wasn’t moving me, so I mixed white and bronze yellow together with my fingers, and just smooshed it all over to cover the purple.

I then “drew” into the wet paint with my pointy tools to bring out the purple underneath. I also used my new fave “paint lifter” which is a piece of cotton lace-like ribbon.

I missed doing my whimsical landscapes, so that is where this one ended up going. I love my trees, hills, and mountains! 🙂IMG_8089

I did the colouring over the white/bronze yellow background with acrylics heavily diluted with floating medium, so that they were super transparent. I built up the color, transparent layer by transparent layer….sides too…of course!

I love how the glazing gave it a vintage kind of feel….especially over the distress marks I had made earlier. Super pretty colorations! 🙂

I like the little landscape I ended up with. Needed an interesting name. Sometimes(usually! lol) I have a very hard time coming up with names for my paintings.

I thought it looked like a happy, magical place to be…a place where one might find unicorns grazing. ;D
