On hold

Started this one before I went on holiday, returning to it I am not sure where its going so I have put it on hold.

Used an electric pink ground after seeing a vid where the artist used Orange, I think its added to the feel of the picture.

Wet One

From when I started with Acrylics  last year it has always been an issue to keeping the paint from  drying before I get to put it on the canvas. so after trying a few different ideas this is what  works for me.

I use a  plastic bag to keep the  water out of my worktop with a  piece of folded cloth on top this I drench in water, then I use Reeves tear off pallet its  100% better than the baking paper I was using and lets you use a  knife without tearing.
