so.. my plan for the summer was to do at least one portrait and I have done that today. It is A5 size and I spent a couple hours on it. Normally my portraits turn out better but I have not painted with acrylics for a while, let alone paint a portrait with them. It has been a couple years since I painted one (excluding life drawing - there is never enough time to do a proper painting... and none of my pictures turn out right). I think I'll do a few more portraits seeing as I miss doing them and it will improve my painting skills (I hope).
Why I painted a winter scene in summer.. I don't know!!
