Archive for Cement Art
This painting is created with a cement mixture in which I die the cement with acrylic paints and using a painting knife apply it to the board backing. One of the challenges in this medium is the wet nature of the work and trying to get the background colors in first trying to work from dark to light. Due to the high viscosity of the medium used it starts to pile up pretty quick and adding dark layers on top can give an off putting appearance when seeing the work in person.
I try to use as little brushwork as possible with this medium and reserve it for detail and some highlights. Hopefully I can locate some images of other works I have done in the past created in this medium.
