Moran Fine Art
I mentioned in a prior post that when I paint, I prefer using acrylic paint. It dries quickly and cleans up easily. However, I wondered if I would be able to get more depth in my paintings without having to use oils. Well, I have discovered that it is possible after looking at the work of Moran Danan. Her abstract, landscape and music-themed paintings burst forth with color and richness. I noticed that she uses a lot of black and warm colors, and any cool colors she uses tend to be very bright. This combination of colors and her strokes, especially the way she paints flower petals, makes me feel like there should be smooth jazz music playing in the background every time I look at a painting. I've used similar strokes in my digital paintings, so maybe I could try that with acrylics. Please visit her gallery. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
