Acrylic colours are fast-drying colours made of pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion. They are water-soluble, but become water-resistant when dry. Depending on how much the paint is diluted with water, or modified with acrylic gels, mediums, or pastes, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolor or an oil painting, or have its own unique characteristics not attainable with other media.  The appearance, hardness, flexibility, texture, and other characteristics of the paint surface can be modified by using acrylic mediums or simply by adding water. Acrylics can be used on paper, canvas and a range of other materials.

My experiments with acrylic colours here at The Cuckoo's Nest have resulted in wonderful paintings that look life-like and real. I have also tried my hand at knife work in some paintings to enhance the relief features like mountains, rivers etc. Have a look at the acrylic art works in the gallery below and share your thoughts.

Beautiful art work, I wonder if the same is not the work of an professional artist. These paintings are so lively that these not only do the justice to their given titles but also provide the imagination & feeling of being in these place. “Misty Mountains” reminds me one of the movie clip of “Pirates of the Caribbeans” and “planets of the apes (1968)”. “Rose” remind me beautiful piece of artwork by dad. Keep it up my little Akanksha. May God Bless you.
