Continued Acrylics – with progress shots

Acrylic painting and pencil sketching continue.

11" x 14" Acrylics, in progress

This one is feeling much more forced than the last one! Probably overthinking things. The black outline was not the best move, but it will probably see a lot of changes yet.

And these are two favorite recent sketches. I am finally using a piece of paper as a smudge guard. Hooray!

I haven’t decided what to do with these, Copics won’t work with this much pencil and the Bristol is no good for acrylics. I could trace the outline on a new sheet, maybe. More likely I will just start the next one.

Thanks so much for dropping by! (All acrylic tips appreciated!)

    Love the little ladybug on his beak. The pencil sketches are nice too. I like the detail in the top one’s jacket.

    I don’t know, I kinda like that black outline, it suits the drawing. And I LOVE the strong colours! Those sketches are amazing! I love all the details in the first one’s coat.

    These are terrific, Cindy. Mr. Acrylic is very colourful and very gentle with his sweet friends.
    Thanks for the process photos, it’s good to see them.
    Your two drawings are really lovely, I think they both come from a gentle land.
