I felt adventurous.
I decided to use my acrylic paints on my old watercolor paper that is defective.
Some people probably would think I am silly to think that is adventurous but I have never used acrylic to complete a serious painting myself.
Although I teach the techniques of acrylic painting to my students daily I have never been a good advocate for the medium. I prefer watercolor or oil. Watercolor is difficult for beginners and oil is not a logical choice for high school considering all the properties of the medium which makes acrylic a logical solution.
Acrylics are inexpensive, dry quickly and can easily be painted over in a matter of minutes if you change your mind.
On the other hand they dry darker than when wet making corrections extremely difficult once the color has dried, they dry too quickly for ease of blending in large areas and they are hard on paint brushes.
So here it is... my first serious acrylic painting on watercolor paper.
Working the Land is 9" x11".
I worked from a photo of one of my grandchildren when he was just a baby.
