Here's another acrylic (my third?) since switching from watercolours. I definately prefer the painting process being dark to light.

It was painted for fun last Thursday night using one of the wetcanvas reference images as a base (I'm not sure exactly which one - url wise anyhow)

Comments, suggestions, thoughts etc would be appreciated.

Approximately 300x310 mm Pebeo Artists Acrylic on MDF (Masonite)

I really like this.. the water looks very inviting. Warm colors, nice shading.

Thank you Ladybug.

I may add a bit more tecture to the warm background on the right - just a few hints of branches and that sort of thing.

This is an excellent painting, the water is particularly well done.

Thanks MIke. I've really enjoyed painting with Acrylics so far. I suspect it will end up my medium of choice.

Hi Mark,

good job you've done!

I was working in water color too, and now trying acrylics. Still love the way a watercolor looks, but I agree with you about the dark to light process. And it's easier to correct mistakes.

keep painting:)

I also moved from watercolour to acrylics, it is easier to correct mistakes but also it offers a brightness which is difficult to achieve with watercolour, I still like to use watercolour from time to time
