Acrylic paintings on white:
Lights on the crest of the grain
My most recent series of paintings used opaque acrylic applied in a tempera-like style to white masonite. As with the paintings on black, I created a heavy, suede-like “tooth” with gesso and a paint roller, and this tooth served to fracture the paint strokes so that the color of the lighter top strokes optically mixed with the color of the darker underpainting. A kind of microscopic Impressionism.
