Let's start with a perfect primer for the large-format painting surface. The SOLO GOYA Triton Acrylic is appreciated by many artists because the paint is suitable for glazing techniques on large canvases. Due to its liquid consistency, the acrylic paint can be easily spread with a brush or applied over a wide area with a paint roller. Afterwards, the study-quality acrylic paint dries quickly and with an even degree of matting. These are optimal conditions for applying further layers of paint. With a wide brush, we first work in warm colour tones such as terracotta and peachy pink in a sweeping manner. Then we pour leaf green onto the canvas and create a fantastic contrast. Want even more vibrancy? Then it's time to mix different shades of green. The SOLO GOYA Triton Acrylic can be mixed on the palette or directly on the painting support. The large format of the canvas offers plenty of room for intuition. It's nice to be able to realize numerous ideas here, because the SOLO GOYA Triton Acrylic is easy to dispense and economical.
Has the first layer of paint dried on the canvas? Then it's time for some colourful action! We drip and squirt the KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink directly from the pipette onto the painting surface and make it flow. Unlike acrylic paint, acrylic ink is rather liquid. The acrylic ink makes its own way. This is a wonderful way to experiment. When two colour tones meet, impressive colour mixtures and patterns are created. By slightly tilting the painting surface, exciting colour gradients can be created. The acrylic ink can also be painted over a wide area with a brush. Fine details are also possible with an ink pen. Here, every idea can be tried out in colour. The colour shades of the KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink are matched to the KREUL Triton Acrylic Marker. This not only creates a harmonious overall composition, but also prolongs the life of the artist's pen. An empty marker can easily be refilled with acrylic ink. This is how sustainable contemporary acrylic art is.
In contrast to watercolour painting, the colour gradients with the KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink are very intensive, silk-matt drying and waterproof - the colour cannot be dissolved after drying. A perfect feature for drawing 'on top' eye-catchers with the KREUL Triton Acrylic Marker. The artist's pen with brilliant acrylic ink is available in different tip versions. The edge tip is an all-rounder for graphic picture elements. Ovals, diamonds or angular details are easy to create with it. The medium tip is suitable for lines, perfect for fancy lettering. If you want to create filigree details in black and white with precision, choose the fine tip. We used it to sketch delicate white flower designs. Extra-wide lines and flat shapes can be worked out with the KREUL Triton Acrylic Marker XXL. Great for setting accents in leaf green in striking places. The valve system of the marker enables an even flow of ink on the artwork. So, everything appears as if it were cast in one piece.
It is impressive what is possible in acrylic art through the interplay of different techniques. We are quite moved by our masterpiece. To ensure that being creative in large format works well, we recommend placing the covered stretcher frame on the floor. Of course, painting in an easel works, but in a horizontal position, flowing paint is better under control. Our acrylic artwork on large-format canvas is created by applying several layers of paint. It is important to let each layer dry thoroughly before starting the next one. Before applying the KREUL Triton Acrylic Ink, we recommend shaking the closed paint bottle well for a few minutes. Also shake the KREUL Triton Acrylic Marker vigorously with the cap closed for 1 to 2 minutes before each application. Then pump the ink into the pen by carefully pressing the tip onto the paper several times.
