Business: Michael Holmes Artworks
From: Des Moines, IA
Michael Holmes is an acrylic painter from Des Moines, Iowa. His unique paintings are vibrant with strong textures. Some paintings have vintage game pieces, lures, pocket watches and more...all items that bring back memories of fun and relaxation. The artwork has often been described as loose, fun and happy.
To create my heavily textured artwork, I developed this process: Sketch an image; apply lightweight modeling paste (found objects sometimes included); paint with black gesso; paint with vibrant acrylics; repaint black lines; seal with several coats of a high gloss seal.
