Hello all! I've read Wet Canvas for almost a year now, but am just now joining in! I graduated college with a studio art/art history major. This is my first painting that I've done since college (3 years ago). I'm trying to work on realistic painting and still lifes. I painted this WIP using student grade acrylics so I'm a little bummed on the lack of pigment. I would love any and all feedback!

Welcome. Nice painting. Some of my favorite objects.:)

Nice work, straight lines and the symmetry were challenges for sure.
The lack of pigment worked fine for these subjects and the bright BG helped.

Welcome to the forum - and 'back' to painting!
You'll find a huge difference when you getter better paints I should think, but these are fine for now!:)
Because of your composition I find this more abstract than still life realism! - but maybe that's something else you're in the process of developing ......... keep going!:)

I quite like the composition, subject and background color. Also, I like the perspective, which I think makes this a strong painting.

Love love love the subject! :P The controllers are spot on in shape and color. They really pop against the background color!
