Carla Bank Designs
I use vibrant acrylics and resins on canvas or wood panels for my artistic expression. My work is derived from interests in architecture, color, rhythm and shapes.
Tinley Park, IL
I do a perspective drawing on canvas with pencil and an underpainting. I then add several transparent layers of soft body acrylic paint. I work randomly until I achieve the desired color tone.
Tel Aviv, Israel
Acrylics, inks, gouache, modeling pastes, sand and more, on canvas / paper. I use anything water based, in my secret mixtures / potions, to paint my joy of life expressionism rendering of landscapes.
My acrylic paintings incorporate added textured gel mediums and various painting surfaces to create dimensional effects within the scene, giving the viewer a sense of involvement.
A mixture of plaster and paint givies the work a physical strength. The added plaster causes the surface to be absorbent allowing subsequent layers of thin paint to create subtle tones and textures.
My work consists of illustrated cityscapes, portraits and cartoon reworks of pieces from the 1950’s to the 70’s. With a vintage style these pieces are framed and made with acrylic, canvas and wood.
