Acrylic paint is a quick drying paint made of pigment that is suspended in an acrylic polymer emulsion. Although water soluble when wet they become water resistant when dry. Acrylic paints were first used as early as the 1930's but did not really become commercially available until the 1950's. These paints were also later sold as latex house paints. Many artists such as the abstract expressionists and famous artist Jackson Pollock used latex paint in his large "drip" canvases. The early inventors of Pop Art such as Roy Lichtenstein also used latex paint on their canvases. But, often latex paint has become so unstable in adhering to the canvas that the paint literally flakes off when moving the art object. Obviously not intended to do so, acrylic paints have been a cheaper alternative to oil based paints and often are much easier to use than having to mix your own. The main difference between acrylic and oil paints is the binder - linseed oil for oil paints and water for acrylic. Acrylic paints also dry a lot quicker than oil paints.

  • Artists Describing Their Art:

    Denise Dalzell - Painting. Illustration. Expressionism. Pop Art. Modern. Realism and, occasionally, a bit of Abstraction. My current work centers on my consideration of how we respond to each other, the stories that develop between us and around us, and how our collective stories reflect on and influence us individually. How our stories bounce off each other and combine to create new stories. My paintings are illustrations of the scenes that I encounter during my travels abroad and in daily life so, some scenes are more sweeping than others. How do we, as people of differing backgrounds, cultures, and experiences interact with each other Are we different people in a crowd than when alone How do we fit in or stand out where we find ourselves at any given moment, in any given story Stories are everywhere, and thereaEURtms no predicting what theyaEURtmll reveal. Body language, movement, color, contrast combine to illustrate my scenes of interaction between people and within environments. The excitement of being a part of something as unifying as a protest, the sense of adventure that comes from starting out with no particular destination, intimate moments with those we love and those we discover in the big events...

    Jim Lively - Whether portrayed in the abstract, realism, or somewhere in between, I am most influenced by both the beautiful and unattractive components of contemporary urban culture. Many times, one painting will reflect both components. My art tends to focus upon interesting juxtapositions of close-up images of human faces. Often, the larger images border upon realism and are caught expressing a panoply of emotions usually directed at the other images that share the canvas. Several of my recent works such as the tongue in cheek entitled "Lenin and Things" contain unlikely combinations of images such as a statue of Lenin which is dwarfed by a billboard size fashion model displaying a vacuous stare. A number of works contain both large images and interrelated small images. For example in the painting "Staring at Natalie", all the smaller images are a depiction of a collective group of voyeurs staring at a larger image of a posed fashion model. I want those viewing the painting to be the ultimate voyeur. The viewer is not only drawn initially to the larger image in its own right but also cannot help but then notice the relationship of the smaller images to the large image. Works displayed ...

    Walther Von Krenner - Before I studied in Asia, Picasso and Gauguin had a great influence on my thinking. Later I admired the ideas and importance of Pollocks action painting. After 60 years of painting I believe I have found and created my own unique and personal style. I think art is about beauty and should not become entwined in politics and controversy. Empires have come and gone but beautiful things have survived most. To much of what passes for art these days is stuff that requires absolutely no skill, talent, taste or training and depends entirely on scandal, political statements and controversy. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Walther v. Krenner is well known in the United States, Europe and the Orient for his unique style of ink paintings. These works display a remarkable range, varying between delicate grace and outright earthiness, reflecting his years of study of Zen and his disarming sense of reality. Von Krenners successful works depend on his arduous discipline, careful observation of nature, strict control of the brush and his great sensitivity to living things. After many years of training, it has become possible for him to work swiftly, without accident or loss of detail, to achieve realistic effects which are most remarkable in ...

    William B Hogan - Statement My paintings are inventions form my imagination and start where my mind, eyes, conscious and unconscious meet. I start by sketching ideas that inspire my imagination and design them into a composition of my unusual visual reality. With pen and ink on 8x11 paper I sketch my ideas until I reach a satisfactory visual compositional solution. Transforming a blank canvas has always been a magic, challenging and exciting journey. My images in composition always seems to be in some state of magic and discovery. The magic begins by taking a visual idea and creating a composition that embraces my ideas on a blank surface and the creative discovery is building the painting with color one brush stroke after another until my idea meets my visual reality. The last brush stroke of my finished painting is the stimulus to begin the journey of another. Biography When I was in 6th grade I won a competition to do the cover for the Christmas pageant. The size was 5 12 x 8- 12, vertical. I drew the driver sitting in a sleigh wearing a cap with ear flaps, not ear muffs. It was snowing of course. I thought the flaps looked neat. ...

    Daniel Clarke - Daniel E. Clarke is a Los Angeles Native who has been painting his entire career in the Los Angeles area. His art education has included studying under the internationally famous Timothy Clark, UCLA Extension University, and Glendale College. He has explored both pictorial and abstract designs but is dedicated to a free flow of color and dynamic composition. Mr. Clarke has concentrated on the acrylic and watercolor medium, and paints on location in his Los Angeles based studio. He also maintains his paintings and sales in his own company called Berrypunch Gallery. ...

    Caren Keyser - My expressionist paintings are done using an intuitive process. I begin with the paint and then allow the paint and my subconscious to lead me to the subject matter. Exciting interactions between colors evolve from brushwork, pouring, glazing, spraying and other techniques. I strive to show the essence of the subject rather than paint an overly realistic image. I never know what I will find next in my work. I hope it will be dramatic and emotional. Note that the paintings are not framed. ------------------------------------- I began painting professionally in 1977 after studying art at Florida Atlantic University. There I explored the many styles and techniques available to the acrylic painter. My first photo-realism style piece was created while attending FAU. I knew from that moment that realistic nature scenes would be my style of choice. This remained my theme and style until after 2005. As time has passed my work has changed and become more creative in its processes. Color is still the dominant feature in my work. As my focus has shifted toward expressionism I stored my realism pieces. The originals of many of them are still available for purchase and are included in my inventory here at ...

    Paulo Medina - Para mA, el arte, ha sido como una pequeA+-a barca en donde he cruzado muchas veces el mar. Una barca frA!gil y pequeA+-a, sin embargo, capaz de cruzar hacia grandes horizontes.

La pintura es poesAa silenciosa SimA3nides Artistic experience, as a spectator, and then, more directly, as an artist, has meant for me the possibility of transcending and reaching certain spaces that are intangible, but lived daily. As a creator, to be in front of a blank canvas or a digital image to be manipulated, is to be faced with a challenge that of translating to the language of forms, textures and colors something that has not yet been conceptualized, but that exists somewhere and that I desire to capture, expressing it through those materials and tools at my disposal. It thereby becomes a kind of game, in which time disappears and one enters into communion with the aesthetic experience with its infinity of moments, which go from pain to ecstasy. Self-taught experimentation in the field of art, has been for me one of the great pleasures of life. La experiencia artAstica ...
