Figures in Acrylic

Now that I have an acrylic "set up" in my studio,
I couldn't wait to try doing a figure.

"Bound and Determined"
8 x 8 acrylic 

I 'd forgotten how you can keep going at it 
and not make mud, 
which can be good and bad. 
It's so easy to over work it! 

 This was loosely inspired by this 
painting by Sarah Benham
an artist I just discovered! 


  1. I think you did a fine job with that foreshortened leg. Something I think most painters find challenging.

  2. I enjoy the simplification of your forms.

  3. Love the bold blue and great title!
