    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.

    Looking like a good start - and background so far is looking good also. Don't worry - I am in the same boat, avoid backgrounds like a bad smell!!!!

    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

    Here is a quickie sketch I did tonight of a friend of mine's horses. It's a 5 x 7 in mechanical pencil. Took me just under an hour.

    And also, the rough sketch of my latest commission. It will be in colored pencil.

    Just under an hour? That's amazing! Your pencil must be absolutely flying like the speed of light!
