WIP of my first attempt at an acrylic painting! I’m liking it more than I expected—it’s easier to work with at large scale than gouache, and the fast drying time allows for more experimentation than oil. The difficulty of blending compared to either of those media is very apparent, but I can definitely see myself using acrylic to build an underpainting for oil in the future.

Hey fediverse, I'm trying to think of some cool, obscure and friendly mythical creatures from existing folklore. The kind who could plausibly be friends of a young child. Anyone have any suggestions? :D
A little winter landscape in gouache. This was going to be a study for a larger oil painting but I kinda like it as is 😊
This was done on 6x6 aquaboard, which I’m really loving for water-based paints! Not too expensive and absolutely no buckling or distorting.
My Bob Rossing has produced a finished painting! I’m happy with this one 😀 Some facts:
- Oil on canvas
- 18 x 24 in
- My 2nd finished oil painting ever
- Not actually based on a Bob Ross video
- Not the Bob Ross method (he does wet on wet, this is mostly wet on dry)
- Loosely based on a bad photo I took of a print in a doctor’s office
- The cloud shadows on the foreground trees were a happy accident
- Taking pics of shiny oil paintings is hard
