Went to Shirley's wedding and rather than accept a gift she just wanted a painting.. Can't wait to get back to using oil paints as the look of acrylic is just not very satisfying to me and they soak into the canvas too much.

Sarah Acrylic Portrait Artwork

Sarah. Acrylic portrait. I guessoed the canvas a couple of times because my other paintings got so absorbed I had to repaint them many times. Finished this one in about 4 hours. May tinker with it a bit as it is almost photorealistic at 20 feet. It is a pretty accurate representation of her.

Tracey Acrylic Portrait Artwork

Acrylic painting of Tracey, one of our senior girls. She is prettier than this painting but it is a good likeness and I like the way the fur turned out. I used a fan brush for the first time.
