Impasto

I've made two new acryllic paintings this week, featuring two of our cats; Jelle Pelle (the orange spooked kid) and Timmy Jip. 
I've used an impasto technique for these pieces by mixing the acryllic paint with a gel medium which allows the paint to dry slower and creates a texture on the canvas. Instead of working painstakingly slow on the smallest details I've worked fast and with thick paint to get a direct approach.
They're painted on gallery wrapped canvas and because the image continues on the edges of the canvas it can go right on the wall as it is, but it looks good in a frame too. Added to the shop today, wohoo!
