Have studied art my entire life, but now I want to paint so here are my beginnings. You may find two other paintings if you look in the archives, but, now I am serious about learning acrylic. Even with the frustrations of not getting it totally correct, I am in love with the process. I have joined the daily painting group in WDE events, but I am cross posting here since these are acrylic paintings all 25x25 cm. These have been painted in the last two weeks. lhttp://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/19-Sep-2008/25273-Acrylic_006.JPG http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/19-Sep-2008/25273-Acrylic_Rohelio_010.JPG Thank you for looking in.

Very nice! I especially like the pelicans and the way you did the water in the first one.

I'm always impressed by anyone who can do a portrait in acrylics. Nice skin tones and not too fussy with detail.

You've got some excellent paintings here. I really like the composition of the pelican one. Keep doing what you're doing.
