Crossing Light

Seems that even though I mix colors to get neutrals I end up pretty colorful.  Maybe that's my path.  Also, from my recent critique workshop I thought I would pass along a tidbit for my acrylic compadres. You may already know this, but, if you (like me) sometimes like the "oils look" try using an egg yolk in your paints, I am amazed how this changed the consistency and blending! Hopefully this will put an end to hard edges where I don't want them!  This is a 12 x 16 acrylic on canvas.  C + C always welcomed.

About Christina Evans


I was born in New Jersey, my family moved to California when I was young and now I am living the country life in Spotsylvania, Virginia with my own family.  I paint in an impressionistic style and the subject of my work is always light and the mood associated with it.  I use photographs, sketches and memory to capture the light and shadows and the essence of a particular place.   With a supportive husband and two children who love to paint along with me, I have the wonderful opportunity to pursue what I love to do.  I appreciate all feedback on this site,  I think that is the best way to keep learning and improving.
