Playing with acrylics – learning how to paint

I have only really painted in watercolour and had training in watercolour techniques – I have never ventured into acrylic until this year.  Initially I just did finger painting (and great fun it was too!) but recently, inspired by work I have seen, I have been venturing into ‘proper’ painting, with brushes and canvasses.

I have a couple of books out of the library and am diving in to see what happens.   My first impressions are that it is fun, and being able to obliterate mistakes by painting over them is a refreshing change over the confines of watercolour! Here is this weeks crop – what do you think?!
