Family Pride


Title: Family Pride
Year Created:
Medium: Acrylic
Surface: Board
Dimension: 30” x 30”
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!

Relief sculpture using DAP wall spackle. This is my first major art. It took over a month to lay down each layer thin enough that it wouldn’t crack then wait until completely dry before adding more layers. I am brand new to the art world and having never attended an art class this became “seat-of-my-pants” acrylic painting. What a monster it can be. But I’m hooked. I didn’t realize how hard it would be to put my art out for critique! I can take complete honesty so please tell me what you think. It can only make my jou<br>ey easier.

I am so new that I don’t know what to ask. This is a lea<br>ing experience for sure.
I did use Blick’s Artist Acrylics and would love to know if they are good enough for art that sells? I have an offer for my Lions but I don’t want the paint to fall off. Jk. I sealed it really well with a resin va<br>ish.

Re: Family Pride

well, welcome to wc! and kudos for patience, creativity and originality.
your paint choice is fine.
only crit i'd give (for future reference) is for gentle eyeball shadows so the eyes are not quite so stark - basically a shadow above the pupil that's cast down from the upper eyelid.
no worries tho, it's a dramatic piece, well done.

Re: Family Pride

Thank you. I always want the eyes to be awesome and I forgot that along with light comes shadows. So a hint of eyelash/eyelid shadow makes sense. Thanks. Never would’ve caught that.
It’s funny what you can find to make art when you live 25 miles out of town on top of a mountain. Lol
