Niagara Falls art workshop

October skies at the American Falls.

We were painting in acrylics this time. I finally got the chance to try the Chroma Interactive paints and found the secret to working with them best - at least for me.

Taking advantage of their unique blending and playing with their removing capabilities, there definitely was more depth in the finishing of the spray and water at the Falls.
No medium was needed for transparency of the whites.

A huge improvement over conventional acrylics. Hard to play with new mediums for the first time plein air painting but, though it took me over a year - the timing was right.
