Hi Mike, beautiful work. May I ask you how you achieve those smooth blended gradients in your backgrounds? I have a hard time getting that effect using acrylics.

Mike Barr said...

Thanks Erik
I work very quickly on the backgrounds so the painting is still wet and blending is easy.
This particular painting took 15 minutes to complete

Hi Mike,

That wasn't painted with a brush, it was painted with inspiration.

Best regards,


Erik said...

Wow, 15 minutes, that was fast.
