Very nice wood painting effect Annie.  Why do you say you were not ready for acrilic  and did the gelly beans in oil  when you did great job with the wood?

Hi Danielle,
So nice to see you popping in.  I was hoping you would see all my recent oils and WC paintings... and offer strong critics to help me improve.   If I could focus on improving one skill in each painting... I would go a long way.

Hard to say, but I think acrylics simply dries to fast for the way I paint.  Even with retardant and spay water bottle!  I paint slowly and have to deal with frequent unplanned interuptions.  I am also a bit confuse with the colors changing a bit when they dry.  I am not able yet to match most dry colors.  Again a problem I would not have if I painted faster.

In this class, Nolan said that any acrylic classes could be painted with oils, and vice versa.  Just that some requires that a step needs to dry well before proceeding to the next step.  I had no problem using acrylics for simple backgrounds like 'First Rose' or the 'Semi-abstract Cityscape', and that is a neat way to get started.

Hope your business is doing well.
Cheers, Annie

I tried acrylic only once, like you I am a slow and the paint was drying faster than I could blend properly.

I do like WC and coloured pencil, which is what I concentrate my art on.   I sold my hat ladies and my little kids at the beach this past spring but I have not sold an other painting since.  The bear someone wanted it but he never got back to me.

good luck in your art Annie.

just went to see your art on your site you are doing great.  keep the good work.

 :thankyou: Win!
You are very kind.   Funny, but the more I look at it, the less I dislike it.  😊

I understand that Annie, I am the same way. I go away from a painting and come back later, and it doesn't seem so bad. Lloyd says if I could learn to pirouette without falling over..... I'd love my paintings in no time!  :D :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Thank Val... you normalized that weird feeling. 

Happened before, I would think "this is the worst ever" and I brace myself.  Then PB members point to areas which need improvement (and I am always so grateful for any critics to help me improve) but then the unexpected when there are also comments on something good that I did not see... and that makes me really happy at the same time.

You guys ROCK!   O0
Cheers, Annie

Thank you, thank you very much Nolan.  Somewhat a bit speechless...
