"Melting Skyline" is an original, signed acrylic painting on a gallery-wrapped canvas by Citrus County Florida artist Michael Arnold. "Melting Skyine."
Melting Skyline was based on a pictire of New York City's bereathtaking skyline. In stead of painting an unoriginal realsitic view of the skyline I decided to melt the lines and allow the view to create their own take on the well known skyline of the big apple. This original acrylic painting is on a quality gallery wrapped canvas. All sides are painted with no staples showing. The acrylic painting is ready to be hung and can be displayed with or without a frame. Each Michael Arnold acrylic painting is an original one of a kind signed piece of art and a certificate of authenticity.
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. 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.
