View Full Version : first finished Golden Open

Hi all,
her is my first finished acrylic landscape painting with Golden Open. But I had some problems with the paints probably because of the surface. I used sanded paper of Schmincke (pastel surfacd). It is water proofed. The surface was too rough for me. It is only a study, my aim is to paint like oil. So I used an oil landscape painting of Mcpherson. I painted it already with pastels. Thanks for comments and critiques.
At first the acrylic:
second the pastel

It's very nice Rudi.
I think some of those light yellowish shapes in the mountains are conflicting with the trees though - could be toned down a bit. :)
You have some very good brushwork.

I agree, nice work. Both have good energy.
