Hi all. I lurk around here when I need help or inspiration, but I haven't posted much at all. I don't think I've ever posted any of my work! I thought maybe I'd get my feet wet here today.
I started using acrylics reluctantly when gouache failed me on larger pieces. I do a lot of pet portraits, for which gouache is a great choice ... as long as it's fairly small! Acrylic is, of course, hugely different, and I struggled with making the transition, but feel I've found a groove I can continue to develop.
Here are a couple paintings I've done fairly recently.
These were done quickly, in a washy style, for a portrait marathon I based out of the GreyTalk
forum. Yes, these are both greyhounds, as are the three dogs in my siggy. It's been sort of a niche for me for several years.
This is more detailed, but not as much as I sometimes do (where did I put the others??
I LOVE feedback, especially constructive criticism, so please feel free.
