Orchid

This is an interpretation of a photo that I took while at the conservatory in St. Paul last week. I thought that I would try acrylics with this one. I like how simple and easy they are to use and the quick drying time, but I also found this a hindrance to my style. There definitely will be a learning curve on using them. I definitely think that they would be great for a glazing technique where layers are a bit translucent and built up on one another. For my next attempt, I may give that a dry.
