New paintings in acrylic

These two paintings were done mostly with a palette knife in acrylic.  I like using a palette knife with small paintings as it allows me to paint quickly without worrying about all the small details and I like how the canvas is showing a lot of texture. These two are both 12 x 12 inches and are for sale in my Dailypaintworks gallery.

Cowichan Sunset - New Work 20 x 24 inch acrylic

I thought I would give acrylic a try again after some not so great starts recently.  After I got used to the faster drying time I was really excited about what I could achieve with this medium.  I don't have to wait days to paint over something I don't like so I found it great for this as I made lots of changes to this painting.  I am fairly happy with the results and will be using acrylic again for landscapes.
