Blue Cocktail

Painting by Vicky Christensen, acrylic paint and media on 16 X 12 inch canvas
This is the second of three canvases I prepared a few days ago. This time I wanted to experiment with Golden light molding paste to see how the texture influenced the painting. After applying the molding paste I imprinted some areas with dots using a silicone hot pad (the kind you put under a hot pan to protect your kitchen counter). I also scratched some lines in the texture and used those to guide the painting. This is also the first time I have used fluid acrylics in addition to the heavy body paints. I am calling it "Blue Cocktail" because I can see the shape of a glass (purely accidental).
