Tuscany by Laura Carter, Painting - Acrylic

This is one of my newer paintings. I really enjoyed working on this one, I love working with texture. I use plaster on canvas and etch or push shapes right into it. Once I've added the colours I want I complete the piece with a darker wash over top which collects in the textures adding to the details of the piece. It takes a bit of patience to complete one of these as there are quite a few drying stages and many layers but so worth it in the end because the organic look is fantastic. I wish you could see it in person. It's the kind of painting you just want to touch!
