This is my first, and most likely my last painting using Acrylics it is 50x 40cm on canvas board.
Anyway I think it turned out OK. You comments good, bad, or ugly are much appreciated

Very interesting and I see you are loosening up Joseph! I see a door opening up in your work.

Did I read rightly ...that this is the last acrylic you want to do ...and it is your first acrylic??

If you will, why?

Nice scene! I like the blue and purple colors in there, they mesh well.

Why the dislike of acrylics?

Dave, Christy
The answer about Acrylic's is that I find them to be wasteful, messier, they dry too fast, my brushes become clogged and they do not blend as oils. And I have to wash my hand too often. Of course I have not much experience with them.
What it is funny about this painting is that about three years ago I had a vein block that fed blood to the optic nerve in my right eye. As a result I have lost half of the vision in that eye and ended my engraving career, the effect is similar to what I see with my left eye closed.
