Practice Makes Perfect!

I’ve been working on painting with acrylics since I really don’t know much about using the medium. A coworker was generous enough to give me a couple of packets of paintable canvas place-mats that they had laying around the house. I like to think I’ve been putting them to good use!

“Sneak peak” at one of my practicing pieces.

I painted a landscape yesterday, and today I worked on a still life. I will be the first to admit that neither is my best work, in fact, I am not even going to share the final products with you. I am, however pleased that I may be getting better at manipulating acrylic painting. Slowly, but surely, after all, practice makes perfect.

Speaking of working with acrylic paint, does anybody have any fantastic tips for me? I’ve been doing some research online, but I believe my biggest problem (no surprise) is patience. I am lacking patience, and with acrylics, allowing the paint the time to dry is going to take some learned habits on my part!
