Someone is about to get soaked!
Okay, okay, so maybe this is cheating a little, BUT, it is week #2 of my own "Trying Something New Challenge"! So last week I tried a bit of looseness in my watercolor. And this week I thought I would try to do an illustration in acrylics. So, I wanted to do an illustration that was simple to try it out and still fit into the theme. I have used acrylics before for flowers or decorating frames and things, but not for an illustration! I have to say I have always enjoyed acrylics...the boldness of color, the smoothness on the canvas. I think it is definitely something I'd like to do more of...the lining and details were a bit tricky, as I used a brush, as opposed to watercolor where I usually use a charcoal pencil. But overall, I think a good experiment! If anyone has any tips for illustrating with acrylics, I'd love to hear them! Thanks!
