* Art Class

I worked a little at home his week.  I was getting so frustrated with the medium (acrylic) which I have not worked in to any great extent before.  The paint drys to quickly here.  Purchased some extender.  Haven't tried it yet.  It will be interesting to see the difference.  Still working on the light and dark spaces.  Obviously, they got their hair.  I really like it.  It was still wet when I left - so there will probably be some blues and purples in there as well.  I'm happy with the water at the front.  They look like they are floating to me which is what I want.  NY needs a little more reflection in the water.  The sky needs work in places.  Then I just have their bodies which I will be working on this week.  This is so much fun.  It's quite a large canvas as well.  I like working large.
