Love in Winter Wonderland

My Lovelies ... hello there and welcome.  So happy to see you here.

After receiving tons of craft paints, I decided to try my hand at a little painted sketch of two lovers in winter.  As I am an oil artist, acrylics are very new to me.  I find this more of a practice session - which is great fun.  My hat goes off to you who use acrylics on a regular basis.  I find it very challenging.  Very much enjoyed doing this and am linking it to Art Journal Journey.

A little love in the winter keeps you warm.

Thanks so much for dropping by.  Adore your comments.  Enjoy the moment.

  2. This is an amazing piece of artwork and worthy of being used for a Christmas card collection. Your use of the acrylics couldn't be better as they have added texture and wonderful colour to the painting. I just love it.

    Thank you for joining in again with another great page for Art journal Journey

    Love Chrissie xx

  4. Your snow lovers are precious and so cheery Donna!
    The idea of oil paints carry great mystery to me.
    You certainly adapted to the acrylic paints beautifully.
    Happy New Year!

  8. Good morning, Donna. Your snowmen are adorable and would be at home here on our front lawn. I am not surprised with your pages done with acrylic paints. You have the talent and determination to make the best of any situation. Looking forward to Tuesday and another precious painting using acrylics.
