Hi everyone,

this is my new acrylic painting. For the background in the upper left corner I used airbrush and the painting is done on gesso hardboard.
Size is about 20" x 12"

Please let me know what you think about it. C & C as always most appreciated!

Greetings

Beautiful work, I am in love with the warm colors you've used in the background. I've been wanting to invest in an airbrush, I just hope that I would use it enough that it would be worth it to buy! The ox is amazing as well, really like how you've achieved the texture of the horns.:)

I know I commented on this one already, but I didn't realize it was acrylic! I thought it was pastel originally. Regardless, it's truly stunning. What brand of acrylics do you use?

Diana, this is superb. You have this amazing style - hundreds of tiny immaculate brushstrokes - what a patient lady you are!!!

Thank you all.

This is great to hear that you like the painting and my style too :)

@Shalese: I use the GOLDEN Acrylics. We have a few shops here in Germany where the Heavy Body Acrylics are also available and I really like to work with them.
But you are right, most times I work in pastels. :) This is my favorite technique but it's always fun to play with the brushes once in a while.

Thank you all so much for looking and the nice support :)
I'm working right now on my new lion pastel painting and hope to finish it soon. Will post some more steps in the next days.

Best wishes to all of you
Diana
