Artwork: Acrylics

On a whim I decided to give acrylics a go. Since I have no idea if I will like it I just got this small beginning pack and these small little canvases. Just to give it a go.

This is for a few layers in and I had already cleaned up one time- because it was Chaos. I am a messy painter as it turns out. No real shocker there.

It is interesting for sure. It doesn’t move like I thought it would. I expected it would like maybe oil paint would. So I could paint more in a way I would like. But it really doesn’t so it is more like… layering a lot. So a lot more like how I would use pastels really. Layering and blending a lot.

I am not sure if I am done with this yet. I will look at it tomorrow and see if it needs touch ups or another layer.

Problem is, not sure how to fix it. I don’t think you use the spray I have but I will look on it just in case. I think you fix it with this white goop and I have no idea how to use that stuff. Something to check out on the YouTube I guess.

The reference drawing I used is This charcoal piece being sold via prints.

This is the original of the charcoal piece I used as a reference, It is currently for sale as well ($135 via Paypal (Via, Stripe or Veem plus shipping)
