Nearly there now, Talk about a kerfuffle! I have had to scan it in but my scanner sees green and turns it all acidic, its really not that bright and contrasty but no amount of messing with the file helped! I still have to finish the mane, the feet and the final details, and the grass. (Sounds like all of it! lol)

I dont think I will be rushing out to get more acrylics in a hurry, a fun experiment though!

This is going to be one I wish I hadnt blogged! lol!

Feels a bit like a cross between mud and paint-by-numbers, or watercolour, which I hate, ha ha. Anyway, this is a shameful update but Im sticking with it till the end as Im not a quitter :S
I do hope he looks better with a mane and a body!
(and if all else fails Im going over the foal with coloured pencil and making it mixed media!!)

Acrylic painting attempt

I have never used acrylics before so I have no idea what I am doing! This is a 8 x 10 canvas board and I am using Galeria.(W&N) My only issue at the moment is the brightness of the colour, I am struggling to find a natural hue

This is a quick portrait just to have a go at something different. I was quite pleased with the result, not my usual style but failrly successful I thought :)
