I appreciate that, Chanda! I've always known I would end up in acrylics if not oils... lofty goals. The last one did look rather like Heather, but the intent was to test skin color in the new medium. I used a multi level glazing technique.
Thank you, Chanda! Your comment was quite unexpected. That is what I've been thinking: Acrylic fits me. I love the effects of light, and can effortlessly handle that with this medium. The quick drying is perfect for my fast style. Neither of the two last paintings took more than two hours. I don't use a color chart, mixed from only 6 colors (cheap Walmart craft acrylic paint), intuitive combinations don't get in the way of the creative process.
