An attempt at acrylics and a couple of market sketches
I haven’t had much time to participate in Nel’s oil class this time around, but today I did sit down and try to do a landscape in acrylics. I worked from a photo, as it was pouring rain most of today, and muddled my way through – never having done a painting in acrylics before. Here’s what I came up with :
I think I like the texture of oils better, but I really like the way acrylics dry quickly, and you can paint over without muddying up your darks.
And a couple more market scenes, an egg vendor and a goat-cheese vendor. Doing this project is making me realize how cool it is to have this wonderful market so close.
