I rejoice! Tonight I finished my second acrylic painting. I've learned a bit since the first one and I am starting to figure out how all that watercolor practice can translate to this strange new medium. The process is completely reversed. Instead of building shadow and darkness onto areas of light, instead of preserving transparency, I slather on dark colors and then build up light over them to reveal the shadows. Chiaroscuro is KEEN! Here it is. I am happy with it. It's nice to see growth happening. I hope my paintings continue to get incrementally better.
