Sorry, did not upload correctly last time.
Would like suggestions on my first acrylic, "Lost Flamingo".

Hi dj,

Nice work for your very first acrylic. I would keep painting and practicing as you have a good handle on how to use the medium.

This painting shows your limited palette and bold use of color with the vibrant blue and red-orange. Since these colors are complimentary they are even more powerful. Depending on what you are attempting to do with your painting, reduce the amount of white you are using in lieu of other lighter colors (then add white if needed), work on composition and arranging elements on the surface, and don't be afraid to paint larger. The larger the surface, the more room you'll have to work.

All the Best,
Diane

Thank you for your suggestions, I can use all the help I can get. I gave the flamingo painting to one of my neighbors for her birthday. She is crazy over flamingos, she seemed to really enjoy it.
Thanks again.
