Art: Intrigued by Night by Artist Peter D.
ABSTRACT PAINTING BY PETER DRANITSIN 20"L x 20"H x 1.5"Depth Acrylic on Canvas 2009 Painting in this layering process can aid the creative energy also, keeping it going strong as an artist has one layer drying in one painting while working on another. The synergy of creativity feeds on itself. The artist may also use acrylics as a range of techniques, from transparent washes to opaque layers, due to the water-solubility of the acrylic medium. This same water-solubility can prove to be a challenge, as acrylics tend to dry faster than the artist can blend to his satisfaction; however, a stay-wet palette solves this problem, enabling the artist to blend his colors and keep them fresh for days at a time. A number of artists use acrylics solely as underpainting, layering the coats until satisfied with their effect on the canvas, then apply oil paints to this rich layer. As you can see, the abstract artist using acrylics has a number of reasons for using this particular medium, but the basics are these: they last, and they can be worked quickly into a work of art. An artist working on commission can speedily predict exactly how much time a piece will take to dry, after the initial work is completed. This is a special bonus for both the artist and the patron as well, as timeframes can be judged accurately and thus allow for the timely distribution of resources. In the art world, pleasing a patron leads to better business practices all around and referrals for future work from the patron and his friends. Acrylics are the medium of choice for the artist and he will illustrate their use as the best medium to his patrons.
