Day SIX of 30 Paintings in 30 Days!
My first acrylic went well, but subsequent attempts have proven frustrating! I’ve got several small canvases in all sorts of stages, but only this little red tree to show yet. (The 5×7 hound dog is still far from done [see below]. Alas!)
My two latest treehouses, the left one mostly acrylic. I experimented with fine line pen and white gel pen. I did not get the Micron nib pen to work very well over the acrylic, but the gel pen went on quite smoothly.
The unfinished hound. I think he was cuter and goofier in the first one with the orange details. And then it went another direction. Curse you, acrylics! It shall be one hundred different hounds before it’s “done”.
Perhaps, in addition to the daily painting, I’ll just keep doing updates on this one for the rest of the challenge month.
p.s. If you are one of the two hundred or so really spectacular painters from the challenge, I hope it is not too painful to see things this early on the learning curve.
