Hi joined WC earlier, a few posts later and now can post a pic.:clap:
This is an acrylic I have painted recently, from a newspaper picture and taken a few months to get finished. Its 27cm x 43cm on canvas. My husband keeps going on at me to show my work, so here goes... first time for everything!

Welcome to Wet Canvas and the acrylic forum. The natives are friendly and helpful. Stay for awhile and you'll see. :)
I love everything about your painting...the crop, the colors, the composition, all wonderful. The motorcycle looks ready to leap off the page at great speed. :thumbsup:
Your husband is right! :eek: Don't you hate it when that happens? :evil: :lol:

Welcome! So much detail! Wow.

Thank you to all for your kind words. I've enjoyed painting since at school, but it's been the last 5 years or so, that I've really got into it and find that the only style that I really enjoy doing is with lots of detail, and because my husband & I are big motogp/superbike fans found that it's this I enjoy the most and am most happy with the results of.

WOW! ....awesome work Karen! :clap:
01-19-2012, 07:00 AM
Thanks all. I can't quite believe the positive response I've received with this first showing of work, and, my goodness, what kind people you all are. Thank you greatly.
01-19-2012, 07:30 AM
Kindness doesn't have much to do with it - you can paint well. It might be worth your while to look at setting up a booth at motorcycle racing events - I wouldn't be surprised at all to see that you could rake up some decent commissions. That audience has a lot of disposable income and are passionate. Maybe offer to do freelance work for motorcycle magazines as well...
01-19-2012, 07:30 AM
Brilliant Karen. Your have great mastery of detail in what is a very difficult subject. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work.
01-19-2012, 11:28 PM
Mastery of detail is spot on. Awesome work !!
01-30-2012, 01:31 PM
D'Arcy, Doug & Eric thank you for your kind words, greatly appreciated.

Holy Handlebars...that's simply stunning!
01-30-2012, 04:46 PM
I agree with everything that's already been said, awesome work!!

Thanks DeeCee, fiddlinjohn and Deborah, glad you like him!

Great work, it can be tough drawing and painting those elipses and sponsor lettering in perspective hey. You pulled it off well
02-03-2012, 07:24 PM
Thanks It Scout, yep, lettering is a right pain.
02-03-2012, 07:52 PM
