LAURA BLAKER artist
I use an impasto style using a pallet knife in acrylic to enhance the color and texture of the painting. I build up the acrylic starting with a black canvas or panel and a red underpainting so that when light hits it there are layers of different colors peeking through. My goal is create an impressionistic image that is on the verge of abstract, that pulls you in to the scene with drama and emotion.
