    Acrylic painting: Wolf (WIP #03 + finished version)

    Another interesting week has passed. Where did all the days go? I swear the last thing I remember is maybe Tuesday? And suddenly BAM! It’s Saturday. But I guess I haven’t just skipped the week because apparently not only I’ve been seen at work but I also finished the wolf painting! It took some work but it’s been a lot of fun too. Also I managed to finished it just in time to gift the painting to my mum for Mother’s Day. Part 1 | Part 2 Unfortunately the last Work In Progress photo didn’t save nicely so below is the finished painting.

I didn’t have much time to work on it yet but below you can see some photos of what I managed to do in about 1,5h yesterday. Part 2 | Part 3

    First art post after a long while! I really missed it. As some of you may know – one of my favourite traditional art media is acrylic paints. Just like any other paints you have to have a place to keep and mix this medium while painting – a palette. Most of the traditional artists I know paint either with oils or watercolours, so many things about acrylics I have to discover on my own, including what palette is the best for acrylics and which one I like the most. The first palette I was using was a cheap watercolor plastic palette, the kind you can buy in supermarkets (and I believe that’s where I got mine) with round-ish shape, recesses for paints and a hole for a thumb. It was way too small for my needs so using it was a constant struggle and I was told by my…
