Trying out my new bottle of Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold Fluid Acrylic

Artists seem to be huge fans of the Golden Fluid Acrylic in Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold so I decided to buy a small bottle and see what all the chatter was about. This is the first thing I’ve painted with it and I’m impressed with the color of it! This image may be a little more intense than in real life, but it is a really cool color.

I started this illustration by painting the main wildflower shapes in Quin Gold on a 6×6 sheet of Fabriano Studio watercolor paper that was coated with acrylic gesso. After letting the flower shapes dry, I used gouache to paint in the stems and leaves and small accent flowers. For the black lines and dots, I used black gouache on a small liner brush.

The main flower shapes were painted with Golden Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold Fluid Acrylic and I’m impressed with the variety of tone you can get depending on whether it’s applied heavily or lightly.

I could see this illustration as a greeting card or throw pillow
