Trying Out Acrylics | Painting


My drawing skills are pretty terrible, but lately I’ve been looking for other ways besides sewing and photography to stay creative.

I’ve been playing around with pencil drawings and have even dabbled a bit with oil pastels. So far, so good. But I still wanted to try more. Enter, acrylic paints.

I’ve painted pieces of wood, clothing, etc. before, but to paint something from scratch is still new to me. It was pretty much a learn-as-you-go kind of thing when I was painting this picture.

There are a few things that I’d improve if I created this again or something similar, but I’m quite happy with the results. My favourite part is the tree. I’m quite pleased with the blending that I did on it. Overall, it’s not bad for a first time effort!

I’m definitely going to explore this medium a bit more and see what happens. With some of the dreams that I’ve been having lately, this might be the way to go with putting them down to paper.

Until the next adventure…
