#18 - The Eye

Acrylic on 6x8" canvas panel.

When I started painting last year I used acrylics, with terrible results. Having done a few paintings in oil now, for my 18th painting I gave the medium another try. Much happier with the results!

Re: #18 - The Eye

Is a good try , did you use a reference?
I would say that you could improve some aspects when you are trying to do do some realism. Else is quite good as representation

Yes, just keep painting - you'll then find out how realistic - or otherwise - you want to be and learn to apply the paint accordingly.
So far, so good!
