First attempt to acrylic

Hope you all had a warm and lovely Christmas, with friends and family. I had - nice and quiet. We certainly had a white Christmas in Denmark - actually it snows, right now. Outside my window there's about 40-50 cm of snow. Allready looking forward to the summer..

I've been working on a painting, lately. For a long time, I had this canvas which i did'nt knew what to do with.. So I decided to make my first acrylic painting, ever. What a challenge! Acrylic is a bit difficult, but very interesting. I'm going to buy some more canvas, 'cause this is fun!
Still got a lot to learn, using acryl.. But I'm trying and learning :o)

I used acrylic, goldleaf, designpaper and beads. Measures 100x100 cm

  1. Ja nog längtar man till sommaren när man ser denna tavla.

    Här har vi massor av snö också.

  2. Sheila, you did a great job for your first acrylic painting. I agree that acrylic is tough to learn at first, but once you get used to it, you'll love it. It took me many, many years to actually like acrylic, but now it's one of my favorite mediums.

    Snow is heading our way here in Pennsylvania.

    Stay warm!

  3. It's wonderful - hard to believe it's your first!!! And I feel the same way - I'm ready for summer already!

  4. I'm always saying how my paintings never turn out as I envisioned them and maybe it's just I'm not used to the medium as you and the others say. I think this is a great first acrylic painting. I like the dimension you achieved with the grass. Good job!

  5. Hi Sheila, I love your acrylic work!!! I really enjoy working with acrylics as they are so bright and bold! Can't wait to see what you do next with them!

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog and the link you left me! How fantastic! I'm now even more inspired!!! :0)
