Today was all about acrylics. The session started with looking at samples of the various techniques, although this time we didn't try any of them out ourselves, and then it was straight on to today's painting ... a cliff top scene.
I'm reasonably pleased with my finished painting but I feel I messed up when adding the thrift (pink/white sponged shapes) as I don't think they look very natural at all.
At the end of the first acrylics session I'm sitting on the fence; I know a lot of you have said that this is your preferred medium but I've yet to be convinced. I prefer the translucency of watercolour paints and this seem almost heavy in comparison, but maybe that is down to lack of proficiency with the paints. I'll see how I get on in the final three weeks of the course.
