It is a huge accomplishment for me to actually finish one of my acrylics! As an inexperienced painter, I often hit a roadblock and give up. Over the past few months I have spent a lot of time painting in acrylics and have learned a lot. I am proud that I moved past the “color” roadblock that I hit while working on this painting.
I did a lot today. I added darks to the leaves, and painted the center of the flower. I also painted the tips of the petals so there wasn’t a gap between the background and the petals. I brightened up the color of the flower, with a more saturated pink.
A part of me wonders, “Is it really finished?” I know I could tweak it for awhile. As I was adding my last tweaks, I thought, “I don’t want to ruin it!” So I stopped and declared the painting done.
Steps today before the finish:
