JC Nichols Fountain Nocturne

The JC Nichols fountain is one of my favorite Kansas City places to paint, and I especially love painting it at night!  I've painted 4 different nocturnes here, two in oil, one in acrylic and oil, and this one in acrylic.  I like to use a heavy body acrylic paint with a dry brush technique, never adding water to the paint.  I don't even rinse out my brushes until I ready to wash them, so that water doesn't dilute the paint.  It's been a while since I've used my acrylics, and it is fun to switch mediums daily.  No better way to keep things fresh!  Painting number 3961 in 3961 days.
