Acrylic Painting | Magical Forest I recently stumbled across Canadian painter, Melissa Mckinnon’s artwork.  I have long-loved incorporating finger-painting into my artwork, as evidenced by my previous paintings, and felt inspired to try and paint my own birch/aspen tree.  I completed this painting on an 8 x 10″ piece of 140 lb. watercolor paper and used a variety of acrylic paints as well as modeling paste for texture.

Mixed Media Painting | Finger-painted Beauty Vivid, colorful, and full of light, this young woman surfaced on my page as I coaxed her to life with my fingers and brushes.  I painted her on a 4″ by 6″ piece of watercolor paper (140 lb.) using acrylics, oils pastels, and inks.
