First Acrylics - still life

Postby demac » Sat Nov 14, 2009 7:29 pm


This is my very first Acrylics painting. Thought I would do something simple hence the still life and give it a go.

It turned out not too bad - twisted banana leaves resting on two vases with flowers (arums) in it. Its A3 size

What do you think?

Interesting work and successful first take on acrylic painting. The banana leaves ( I would have never guessed what they were) give the painting a surreal feel, accentuated by the greens.
