Acrylic

 I finally got up the guts to try out the acrylic paint set I bought on a whim at Hobby Lobby a few years ago. A year later I finished it for Big Sis's bday. It doesn't look much like her daughter, but I'm happy with it for my first shot. And even more happy I finally finished it and don't have to look at it anymore.


I always draw with a grid so that part isn't too bad, but this paint is tricky because you can add dimension with the shade of the color AND the texture of the paint.

I think I'm ready to go back to a medium you can erase.

Brianne, I know just how you feel. But sister, for reals I think it looks great, ESPECIALLY for a first try.

I also think it looks amazing! It is so beautiful. And I love how you handled the texture of the dress. I don't know how your instincts seems to always lead you in the right direction. I will display it always.
