Welcome to the forum AnnMargaret and to Acrylics.
You've used the medium very well it seems - you are not new to painting/art!:D
We used this ref in a PAL (Paint-a-Long) earlier in the year, learning about lost and found, hard and soft edges.
Follow this link if you'd like to see how it might help.:)

Lovely. Looks like you're an old hand at this! 😀

Wow! Your first?

Excellent! Love it! The shadows, the roundness of the apples, all is very well done.

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments. I am an amateur several years painting with pastels. Now I started with acrylics. Thanks for the advice Charlie's Mum..... I'm a little more difficult to get by on the forum because my English is not the best:wave:

I love the detail!!!! And the warmth!!! It's like i can almost reach out and take one, they look to me that tangible!

Wonderful! Did you enjoy working with acrylics?

09-23-2014, 05:13 PM
Thanks for the nice comments. Yes, I enjoy working with acrylics, really. Three years I am working with soft pastels. I am sorry, because I started too late to learn painting .... I did not know that wonderful feeling. But I am not young.:wave:

Don't worry about the language, the art work is not affected. You have done a beautiful job. Hope to see more, soon. Keep up the good work.
