besides playing around with the medium, this is the first painting in acrylics that I actually, truly finished...

here (http://ew2.lysator.liu.se/pic/art/b/o/bohemian/unicorn.jpg).

any comments or criticisms?

I think something went wrong http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/29-Apr-2004/10305[email protected], I cannot see the painting....

did you click on the link...?

Yes, but it doesn't work. Try it yourself.
You have to go to QUICK LINKS at the top of the page and there you have to use the IMAGE UPLOADER.....

I understand your statement Bohemian, about being the first you actually completed. I'm coming close to completing my first also. But, all that went before has allowed me to come to this point. It's an education process.

As to your painting, there are some very nice effects, like with the water. :clap: I enjoy the silloheted unicorn too. The reflection in the water is great. Now, lets look again. Is it a sun or a moon? The sky says its the sun, the water says its the moon. : ) Intentional? The rendering of each is quite nice, but maybe in two different paintings?

Also, I ran into a problem with the link also, but if I clicked "here" in your post, to open in a new window, I got the image.

Keep at it my friend........ keywestb.

thanks guys, sorry about the funky linking stuff...elfwood is not always cooperative (I'll use the WC hosting or my own server next time)...yeah, the sun's reflection does look somewhat weird. The photo isn't the best but I see what you mean...lol, it was my first attempt but not my last. I redid the theme in this next one. I'm not happy with this photo either - the figure got really washed-out...but you get the idea...
