Watercolour vs. Acrylic

The other day I sat down to do two portraits – similar but completely different. The first was done with pen and then watercolour paints, which to be honest, I am still getting used to.

I ended up with a girl that reminds me of a Rainbow Brite character (a good thing) and also the first watercolour that I’m showing other people! 😉 I think my watercolour style is definitely going to involve using an ink pen and watercolours together.

Then it was time to bring out the acrylics. Instantly, I felt at home again, as acrylics are the only paints I’ve used for at least the past 5 years. I ended up with a portrait that I’m quite happy with! So, here are the two finished portraits:

Hope you’re having a good day….xx
