Acrylic paintings with texture (rocks)

I love geology and looking at patterns in rocks, their colours and textures. As well as the scientific observations I do enjoy doing paintings of rocks. Tasmania’s  (Australia) North West and West Coast are wonderful spots for inspiration for rock based paintings. These 3 are all painted in acrylic (Atelier Interactive) on Canvas board (10×14 inch = 25.4×35.6cm). I have used Matisse modelling compound (my preferred of the many texture media I have tried) to achieve textural effects in the 2 Tarkine works.

To apply the paint and medium I have used both brushes and palette knives.
