Chief Mountain (in progress): September 29-30, 2010

"Chief Mountain, Glacier NP" is an 8"x10" acrylic painting in progress. This is my first painting using Golden OPEN acrylic paints and I'm really enjoying them. OPEN acrylics stay wet longer giving a longer "open" working time. This allows for better blending much like oil paints, but they don't take quite so long for the finished painting to cure. Normal acrylics dry almost too fast in this arid Montana climate. With the OPEN acrylics I can really slow down and enjoy the process.
