Good News / Bad News About Acrylics

I was curious to see how acrylics would "translate"
 in to a larger format so I attempted this 24 x 30. 
High Noon 
24 x 30 

Turns out, I ran into some of the same problems
I have when working larger in oils!
(Scale off, inaccurate drawing, and too many hard edges.)

The good news about acrylics
is that I can paint right over this!
Nothing lost, nothing gained.
Except now, I know.


  1. Oh, how I wish I could be at that cottage!
    I like to use acrylic as my background surface because it dries fast and I can start painting quckly with oils.
