Another Mackinac Island Demo Painting

Mackinac Island Dock 2, a 30″ x 40″ acrylic on canvas. Available.

During my 4-hour demo at LaFontsee, a number of the visiting artists who came during the second half wanted to see the beginning stages of the painting process they had missed. I was happy to oblige them, so the Mackinac Island scene made an appearance in one form or another on 3 different canvases! The photo above is the newly finished second one: “Mackinac Island Dock 2.”

One thought on “Another Mackinac Island Demo Painting

  1. Ever since I came across your Painting, “Can’t you see a truck is coming” featured on the cover of the 2016 Acrylic Artist magazine I signed up and have the pleasure of seeing your work.

    One problem I have, which really wasn’t answered on your technique page is, the paint is difficult to blend because it is drying too fast. Do you use any additives. I hate to add too much water because it tends to wash the colors out on the canvas. I like to work with small 5 x 7 and 8 x 10 canvases.

    Thank you, Stephen
