Hi folks I'm usually in watercolours,but two years ago I was on holiday in Wales,recently I found the sketch pad and the photos,my friend gave me a set of Acrylics,and I decided to try them out.It was done on Daler~Rowney A3 acrylic paper from a pad,it's my first acrylic and although I found it a bit strange,after watercolours,it won't be the last Alan

Very nice. I like the reflections. Makes me want to give up watercolors and take up acrylics.
I've been looking at your work over in the watercolor forum. Now, I see this acrylic painting here. My goodness, you are talented. I get this feeling you can pick up just about any medium and make something beautiful out of it.
Keep up the gifted work.
First acrylic? oh you have to be pulling my leg this is great looks as if you've been working with acrylics forever. Great work really-really well done.:cool:

Thank you for your comments
Tony I didn't find it all that different,apart from the drying.
Yogi What a nice thing to say ,thank you once again.
Bug truely this was my first acrylic,not my first painting,in fact I was so impressed with the acrylic medium,I've painted one of my favourite watercolours,Galwaybay Oystercatcher again in this medium and I think that for this kind of painting it's better than watercolours. It's loosely based on a technique used by no less than Turner himself,in fact had Acrylics been around then I'm sure Turner would have approved,I'll post it later.Thank you once again Alan
