Fat Pegion

9 x 7 in  -  23 x 18 cm     Liquid Acrylic    

Done for a two hour challenge. I think I have to admit that this one is not a success. It was the first outing of some newly purchased liquid acrylics. While they act like watercolour I was unable to mix colours to form the darks I am used to mixing.

This is the reference, it is actually one that I took in Italy earlier in the year.

The reason why I am showing this failure here is because I have come to realise that if you only show your successes the pressure becomes far too great. Much better to be honest to oneself and the audience and show that not everything comes out quite as it should.
