Man in Blue Green and Yellow is an original signed acrylic painting on canvas by award winning Citrus County Florida artist Michael Arnold"Man in Blue, Green and Yellow" is an original, signed acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped canvas by Citrus County Florida Artist Michael Arnold.

"My inspiration for this painting came from a series of sketches I made in my figure drawing class. This particular subject posed in various €œmoody€ setups and I decided to recreate the sketches into a pop art painting. The modern, abstract feel of the painting is enhanced by it's simple geometric lines and a bold color palette. The finished artwork is a far cry from my original thumbnails and sketches I put together for the painting. The composition is basically the same, but I went through about four different color schemes, constantly tweaking the various tones of the colors. Nothing seemed to work until I finally added the bold, black outlines that seemed to pull the whole thing together for me".

This artwork was created using acrylic paint on a high quality wrapped canvas. Acrylic paint works very well on stretched canvas. When purchasing artwork many people aren't sure what the difference is between acrylic and oil paintings. The main difference between acrylics and oil paints is the inherent drying time. Oils allow for more time to blend colors and apply even glazes over underpaintings. This slow drying aspect of oil can be seen as an advantage for certain techniques, but in other regards it impedes the artist trying to work quickly. The fast evaporation of water from the acrylic paint film can be slowed with the use of acrylic retarders. Retarders are generally glycol or glycerin-based additives.

Oil paints tend to require the addition of a toxic solvent, such as mineral spirits or turpentine to thin the paints and clean up tools, though relatively recently water soluble oil paints have been developed for artist use. Secondly, oil paint films become increasing yellow and brittle, and will lose their flexibility in a few decades. Acrylics can be used on many surfaces without a medium- layer. They allow sharp brush-strokes but also a more delicate shading, although it is more difficult to create a smooth change between different shades. They are usually very bright. Although the permanency of acrylics is sometimes debated by conservators, they appear more stable than oil paints.
