AcrylicWorks 1: The Best of Acrylic Painting is now available in the North Light Shop, Amazon and other retailers! Enjoy this excerpted piece from the first edition by Michael James Riddett:

A Brief History of Flight in America by Michael J. Riddett

A Brief History of Flight in America Michael James Riddett
Acrylic on hardboard
9″ x 12″ (23cm x 30cm)

The original intent of this piece was simply to challenge my ability to paint the Spirit of St. Louis stamp life size. Five stamps, two envelopes, pince-nez spectacles and a library table later, I had completed one of the most time-consuming little paintings of my career. Whenever I tackle a trompe l’oeil painting with historic content, I insist on having the actual objects in hand. Stamp detail is a challenge. I work with three forms of magnification in tandem: my bifocals, jeweler’s head piece and an old handheld 80mm medium-format camera lens. This combination allows me to subtract tiny bits of acrylic pigment with a needle in order to simulate the original engraved surface of a stamp.  Confronted by a stamp collector, I was asked why I had glued the stamps to the painting. The illusion was complete.
