Great point tinyliny. I was trying to blend the background into the horse's neck, but wound up creating dark smudges into the background, so I quit. I definitely want to touch up this drawing a bit more to make it look cleaner.
Here is attempt #2. Again, it was very rushed and there are a few things I want to touch up. I'll get better pictures when I do so.
Here is my latest WIP. It's an 8 x 10 acrylic painting I am doing for a fundraiser I donated to a while ago. I just put down the first layer of paint, so there's much more I need to do to this painting. I may go back later and touch up the background a bit. I just hat doing backgrounds.
Update on the acrylic painting. I still have a lot more detail to add to the eye, nose and ear. I may go back later and do touch ups everywhere including the background. I've had very limited computer time with my computer having a virus, so this has been a much slower process than usual. Lilruffian, if you have any pointers, I'd be happy to hear them.
Hey liz! It's been awhile since i've posted on your thread...though I have been keeping up with it. I think it's awesome that you're tackling acrylic. I love the wip photos going through the process of adding layers. Always amazes me how differently that first layer looks compared to the finished product.
And I wish I had a great tip to share, but I've got nothin! Lilruffian is definitely the acrylic expert here on hf
