Acrylic, 16" x 20" Gallery Wrap Canvas 1.5"
This one took forever to do.
I started this one May 21st, two months ago. But I did have surgery and it took a little time to recover.
I kept going in too dark and having to go back in to lighten it. It's a woodland scene so it is shady. Add to this, acrylic dry darker than when you apply it. I would put the background in and simply didn't like it, so the next day I would do it over. I am very happy with it now.
When I delivered it to my client, she was thrilled. Her husband came in, one look and he recognized it as their woods and creek. I was thrilled then! Success! This was a gift (surprise) for him.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
