hi everyone, this is my first post here. i was lured by stevenbg after he submitted his finished version of a previous wde on the acrylics forum.
this is a great idea and i wish i found it sooner. :)
my first attempt is a 16 x 12 inch acrylic on canvas.
2 hours in and probably about half finished. criticism is very welcome at this stage of my learning process.

Great to see you and I am sure you will get addicted to this place, it is great for friendly banter as well as being a huge learning curve.
Your painting has an expressionist feel to it with the use of vibrant colour and your buildings have a soft curvy feel to them. :clap: :clap: :clap:
Keep going and I shall check back to see the finish. Glad you have enjoyed your first one. :wave:

Great start and Welcome :wave:
I see something of a Georgia O'Keefe feel to this and the colours say summer heat :) :) - you say you're half way so please keep us posted on your progress

I like the general tones you've laid in on this and look forward to seeing more. Also look forward to more of your interpretation of this.

Oh oh Nevbogus, this is the third cafe I have visited so far tonight. I am afraid they may have to carry me out the door! Looks like a great start to me! Now oto see if th epost actually takes this time. Things are acting a little strange on the WC site tonight.
