Well... today.. I finally plucked up the courage to take my shiny new acrylics out of the box and use them...I have cheap ones I have been using for backgrounds etc... but these are a little posher.. and pricier :-) and I am scared of them!
So.. with plenty of encouragement from the Fantabulous Glitterhood Girls.... I played..... and I have to say, I am rather impressed with them...... she became a little more "fantasy" than I was aiming for... mainly cos I am crap at mixing colours! So I took the fantasy idea, and let her run with it and be free....
The background is Derwent Artbars (there HAS to be something Derwent in everything I do.. even if it is only the pencil I sketch with... Addicted!!) I scribbled them all around, painted out roughly with a waterbrush, then spritzed with more water.. let it react and swooshed it about to blend.....
AND.. as a first go... I am very very chuffed with her nose shading! Bit Smug!!
