Day 15 – Impressionistic color studies

15/100 I finished up my exercises from my acrylic class. These are a great improvement from my first ones! I am pretty happy with them. Now I want to apply what I’ve learned and make things a bit more whimsical! I think I’m definitely becoming a fan of acrylic as I get the hang of it and my brushwork loosens up a bit!

Day 10 – Blind contour lamp
