5x7 Acrylics on canvas panel.


This was a quick study painted alla-prima (wet-in-wet) with the Heritage MultiMedia Acrylics.


I was trying these acrylics brand for the first time. It took me some time to get used to them since the acrylics I normally use are the Atelier Interactive acrylics which allow me to re-activate any area of the painting to blend colors, which is very forgiving.


The Heritage acrylics are what they call: Global. With the use of their medium mixed into the paints, these acrylics remain wet for many, many hours. And the paints on the palette remain wet for years with proper care when you have mixed the Globalart Extender medium with them.


This study took about 3 hours to complete.
