Measuring at 2×2 meters this was quite a task! Thoroughly enjoyable though!

Had such a great day in the gallery today!
Close up detail from the painting shown in the previous post.
A few months ago my art supplier stopped stocking my preferred Winsor & Newton oil paints. Whilst I was waiting for an online delivery of new colours I decided to mess around with a few acrylic paints I had kicking around the studio. For an oil painter to switch to acrylic painting there are many challenges. One of which is obvious – acrylics dry really fast! A real problem when working with layering glazes as I was doing with oils. The recent portraits posted here are acrylic paintings, the pressure is on to work a little faster to try to create an acrylic portrait using oil painting techniques! Here’s a recent acrylic portrait which I have tried to make appear as though it has been painted in oils.
Continuing my series of Women and Fashion, here’s my latest painting of a young girl with a book. That green dress was fun and challenging!
An exciting and exhausting day. I finished this large painting for a solo exhibition next year. My husband took this photo, I apologize for looking scruffy and tired!
