Before I discovered my love for watercolor, I used to paint silhouettes with acrylic paint. I still love painting things similar to what is on this page, but I haven’t done it recently.
This is one of my favorite series to paint. I came up with this idea for my Senior Show in college. I painted on sixteen 4×4″ wood panels. My first paintings in this series was the wolf, giraffes, and seahorses. I wanted a variety of backgrounds and animals, so I tried to explore different colors and animals.
Here are some other silhouettes I have created. Some were for fun and some were gifts to friends.
If you know anything about me, you know that my favorite movie is Tangled. I love the song, “I See the Light” (I walked down the aisle to it) and the boat scene that goes with it. Here are some acrylic paintings I did, but if you keep explore my website you will see this scene pop up some more.
The most interesting painting I have created with acrylics is this couple in the rain. I painted it on popsicle sticks.
