I have been playing with my Acrylics and I painted this little canvas for my Grand daughters bedroom..
I used M.Graham Acrylics and Atlier, and some Golden Liquid Acrlics including some metalic gold.
The canvas is 12" x 16" Please feell welcome to c&c. :)

The photograph has washed out the painting some, pity as I didn't use a flash either... It is quite bright irl..

What do you think??

Cheers JJ

Hi, (((JJ!!))) So great to see you painting again...

This painting is really great ..,. It would fit right in on
the wall of my Grandsons' bathroom... it is done in undersea
motif much like this, shower curtain, walls, and toilet seat!!

Maybe I should get some Golden Acrylics too?

My grand-daughter showed me a painting she did in class couple of weeks ago very similar to that.. Looked great. Yours looks great too.. More colour in it that my grand daughters.. FIsh look more like fish too.. lol..

Hope your feeling well..

Good to see you back JJ .......
I like this - the conversation going on between them ....... love the rising bubbles!
The only thing I'd add are a few from the bottom fishy, linking to one of the others - tiny touch to link the group.

Didn't realise you'd been ill? - hope all is well now. :thumbsup:

10-17-2006, 12:17 PM
Ohhh JJ, I think your granddaughter is going to ADORE this!!! What a fun painting!:thumbsup: :clap: :clap:

Any child would love this in their bedroom or bathroom. Kid's just love bright colours, it's great.

Thank you everyone for your lovely and kind comments..

Marueen I did think that too, adding bubbles from the bottom fish as well. I will get onto it..

Thank you all again, you are wonderful. :clap:

Cheers JJ

Ah, its a good day for a tailwag. Perfect painting for a little girl. :cool:

Beautiful JJ. Glad you got a better image up as it makes all the difference. The grandaughter will treasure this. Might have to look at the Golden liquids paints myself sometime. I keep hearing good things about them.

Thank you Elaine.

Can you tell me how you use the retarding fluid?? Do you dip your brush into it or mix it into the paint??

I love my Golden Fluid Acrylics. Just a pity they are hard to get hold of here..
