Get behind nature with Nene

Painting nature

Hi my name is Raelene Brown. My nickname is Nene! I'm the artist behind Nene-Art-Australia.

As I'm outdoors a lot I get to enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us. Art is a great expressive outlet for me and my appreciation for creation is shown in my art. Living in Western Australia we are spoilt with beautiful beaches. We all have a favourite beach, a special place that evokes beautiful, warm, fond memories. I love to paint beach scenes that help stimulate these positive thoughts.

However, before I really got into painting, I was more into sketching. As well as seascapes, I'm fascinated with flowers, like most people - such gorgeous form and folds! Then, wanting to inject full colour and texture into these sketches I started painting. Although my art journey started with pen and paper, I don't sketch out my paintings! For me, its one or the other. A sketch is beautiful as is. So I just apply paint to the canvas!

I love to paint on a deep edge canvas with the effect of the wrap around - art at all angles! I also love using thick layers of paint for an impasto style. I use various palette knives, all sorts of brushes and even my fingers for those finishing touches - no pun intended!

I love mixing colours to get different results and various hues and shades. I use high quality acrylic paint and sometimes use slow dry mediums to play around and blend with colours for a longer open time. I am loving my Hydrocryl paints. It's high viscosity is perfect for my impasto obsession. The colours are deep and rich, the kind of opacity I need to cover a canvas! But the beauty of these acrylics is that you can mix with water if you want a wash effect or want to build up the layers. Hydrocryl do have a flow promoter medium that I'm yet to get into, can't wait!

Thank you Hydrocryl! Happy Painting Everyone! 

Thanks for sharing Raelene!

Below are some of Raelene's recent paintings using Hydrocryl.
