A couple of weeks ago I noticed that the acrylic painting of the palm trees with snow covered mountains had considerable cracking on the sky portion of the composition. When I created this painting in July of 2013 I had used several layers of glittery acrylic paint, which I think caused the cracking across the sky. I decided to add a few more layers of glittery blue hued acrylic paint to cover the cracks in the sky. After adding a few layers of paint there was less cracking on the sky, but the new layers made the tops of the mountains start to crack. However, I decided the fissures in this painting give it character. Actually, another person on YouTube pointed this out to me, and I am thankful they did. Also, the cracks on the top of the mountains look similar to the snowy patches painted on the peaks, so this just works well. Some acrylic paints just crack, and sometimes it is better to accept how this can create unexpected but fun effects in a painting.
