do you use the glazing technique at all to layer your acrylic paintings (like oil)?

I sure do- many thin layers with gloss gel medium.

You're work is, curious to me. I don't wish for you to get the wrong impression. I like a great many of your pieces very much. I simply say curious because they catch my attention and liking for reasons I can't entirely explain.

I think this piece is one of my favorites. Though the story I get from it is slightly different than the one alluded to in the comments. But that's all in the eye of the beholder.

This is honestly one of the most inspiring things I have seen on devART in recent months, the composition, the colours, and the beautiful details - I could spend hours looking at them. Thank you so much for inspiring me. x

Oh man...I cant even explain why I love this soo much....all of lifes creatures put into the hands of mans mistakes...it is soo sad...and yet men/women are still ignorant and/or corrupt enough to keep it going....I absolutely love your insights and the beautiful detailing..:worship: Hopefully you are not tired of the compliments...I just feel bad, I am just now getting to your works...this DA is sometimes hard to keep up with!! :blush: Keep on painting Joseph..you need to keep sharing for the universe to know!! :giggle:
