Sundown at Canatara Park

Landing Gear Down!

Hi there: I take my camera whenever I walk in our local park and I took a photograph in a rather dark area as the sun was going down.

I usually paint in watercolour but decided to have a go at acrylics....seemed a good idea as I bought them and then they were stuck away in a box for months.

I used an old canvas board I've had stored away for about twenty years and my new Winsor Newton "Finity" acrylic paints. I bought a Masterson stay-wet pallette and the paints were workable for several weeks....really liked it.I think the word "overkill" would be a good description of the painting....didn't know when to stop it was so much fun.

I really like acrylics....easy to correct mistakes. Mops

The symphony of color
by: Irina

Hi Mops!
I see, that you has wide experience of drawing. Fine combinations of natural shades of greens and blue, successful compositions. I know, how it is difficult to draw from a photo,and your doing is remarkable!Therefore your opinion on mine "first attempts at writing" is very important for me. Many thanks! It would be desirable to hear your opinion on other my works.

Nice one Mops, The reflections are really nice. I also like working with acrylics - they're so forgiving!!
