Wet & Wild III in acrylic
Wet & Wild II in pastel
I have been a pastel artist for the past 20 years and thought I would give acrylics another go.
I tried them before and found they dried too fast and I couldn't get the same results as I could with pastels so just gave up.
After watching Mark's youtube tutorials I purchased the How to paint Water DVDs and bought the interactive paints and played around with them for a few weeks.
Then I tried doing a similar painting that I had already completed in pastel to see what the result would be and must say I am rather pleased with it.
Now that is out of the way I will go back to playing and experimenting to see what else I can do before tackling another painting.
Here is a photo of the finished painting in acrylics and a photo of the similar painting in pastel.
