That Easter Feeling

by Grant
(Ahlden, Germany)

I actually got round to using the cheap packet of acrylic paints and a 130mm x180mm stretch canvas frame thingy that I bought a few months ago. This is my first painting (apart from what I did as a child) and I got the idea from a napkin that was on the dining table at my mother in laws 2 days ago.


I first drew the picture using a Faber Castell propeller pencil B 0.5mm and then filled in the outlines using the paints.

I'm very happy with this and it looks a lot better at a distance. I am now looking at doing a sailing scene from an advert that I have on a slightly larger canvas.

All tips and comments are greatly welcomed. Thanks for looking, Grant.

Daffodils

This is great for your first painting Grant. You have put in the shading of the petals which shows how observant you are. It's very natural for your first attempt. I've tried the same sort of thing with watercolours and that's not so easy. Acrylics are great aren't they. Well done!!
