Using Mixed Media
Using mixed media to paint this powerful and explosive gorilla I had to bring out all my tools by mixing acrylic paints, spray paints, and paint markers. I love using acrylic paints simply because the dry so fast and I will tend to use the cheaper paints simply because i will mix in multiple colors. One of the methods I am known for is using multiple layers. I love the depth that using multiple layers creates. When using multiple layers I like using a paint that will dry very fast. Mixing in spray paints and paint markers because I love the added texture and textural feel that they provide. Montana Gold spray paint is a favorite of mine but I will use other brands as well. Montana Gold is an acrylic-based, extremely high-covering professional spray paint that works on almost any surface, even flexible ones. I use it on canvas, concrete, glass, wood, and more depending on the project I am working on. If your in the LA area I love going to ASW (Art Supply Warehouse) they have a wide range of spray paint and paint marker supply. Art Supply Warehouse, supplying discount art supplies coupled with killer customer service for over 40 years! I do have to say that the customer service is very helpful and knowledgeable. Just a quick plug!! I just worked on a painting of a womans face that has the same feel or technique that I am using here with this gorilla painting.
