Green Butt Skunk


My first attempt using acrylics. Started with a toned sheet of 24" x 36" Watercolor stock. I used a warm tone so that it would compliment the blue washes. I then started in with the fly, apply thin and thick washes of acrylic. I then worked on some wet and wild blue washes. I added the highlights and spread the paint with my fingers. Made me feel like a kid again! I still think I will add some "nail cheeks", then call it done. I will definitely be using acrylics in the future!

I've painted with acrylic for years, but looking at your painting inspired me to break out the water colors a couple of months ago. It's really hard to go to a good water color technique after using something that's so much more opaque. I just keep trying, maybe I'll get it one of these days!

Love the mood of this piece, my friend. Looking forward to seeing more of acrylic work, for sure.
