View Full Version : Anticipation (Foxhound)

While my first love will always be watercolor, I recently decided to explore acrylics and find I am really enjoying it. Here's my third attempt in the medium, a foxhound (from a photo that I took at a recent hunt meet) anxiously awaiting the day to begin. 9" x 12", on canvas board. C&C welcome. Enjoy!

if you love water colors, and your learning you enjoy acrylic, and you want a hybrid between the two, guess what? there is one you'll enjoy. gouache! try it!

Thanks for the kind words!

I have tried gouache and do still use it in my sketchbooks. Since this painting, I've moved on from acrylics, deciding I didn't like them. I tried oils and while watercolor will always remain my first love, I very much enjoy working in oils.
