This is my first attempt at a portrait using acrylic paints and I must say that I am quite pleased with it. As acrylics dry so quickly, I found it difficult to get soft shadows in places and this can be seen on the hard spot on the shoulder. However the mouth and eyes seem to draw your attention from this and you don’t notice these shadows immediately.
Portraits are an area I would like to get into and this has spurred me on.
As ever.. Thanks for looking.
