View Full Version : My Second Acrylic

After my first acrylic painting, I decided to do a self portrait.
The results is not exactly what I intended to produce, but hope its not too bad for a beginner.
C&C welcome!

You are doing fine. Keep at it. Takes a while to just learn the properties of the materials. To do a portrait, let alone a self portrait is at best daunting. You have done a fine piece.

Talk about throwing yourself into the deep end - portraits are difficult enough to do, let alone for one of your first acrylics. Good start, well done.

Ajith, you have done a fine portrait for your first try! Yes, acrylics dry very fast. I went to water mixable oils for this reason, but think they dry too slow! Never satisfied, huh?

Ajithr, I'm also new to acrylics and think you are doing very well. :clap: It took great courage to tackle a portrait!
