Beautiful Maryna :clap: just darken the shadow right up against the figures so that they fade out as the shadow moves away from the figure - that will anchor them O0

Nolan:  I couldn't keep up with the acrylic painting, and got 'most' of the sky done. I've had a bad reaction to some of the meds I have to take, and couldn't work on the painting right away. Now....after it's dry, how do I go ahead with finishing the sky and blending my colors? Dampen the canvas first?....Put new paint over the old and blend?...I'm so anxious to finish and see where I'm at. I'm not sure about placing the lamp post and people as I used the whole canvas instead of half.  I'm not doing oils....yet, but can figure that out....I think.
Thanks...any help will be much appreciated.

Tousabella simply mix up your colours again and continue painting. If there is a difference in colour you can paint straight over the previous sky as well O0

 >:(  As if I don't have my hands full as it is .... looking at these paintings I might just have to dig out my old acrylics or find some water soluble oils! Life can be so difficult .... decisions, decisions  :-\     :2funny:  :2funny:  :2funny:

Beautiful paintings  :clap:  :clap:
Cheers, Val

Nolan....will there be more acrylic painting, or have I missed something?  I sure hope you have more. I really like the acrylics, especially for rock painting (Dennis has really hooked me on watercolors, too!!)    ;D     ;D

You can take any of the paintings used in oil classes and paint it with acrylics. You will get the same effect  ;)

yes there will be more acrylic painting classes. That is why I held this "bridging" class, so that I am able to paint in both mediums and both the oil and the acrylic artists can follow along O0
