I haven’t drawn or painted anything for the last few weeks because I’ve been working on setting up a little business. I thought it was time to have another crack, so here it is.
This was a toned-ground exercise from my acrylics starter kit. It was a bit of a disaster—mainly because I ran out of white and mixed most of the colours way too dark, but also because I got discouraged, started experimenting, and made a bit of mess of it. Again, I learnt a lot, though, and I did enjoy creating the toned-ground effect.
I also did a reasonable quick sketch from the photo before I attempted the painting:
This was my attempt to capture the rainbow effect in my daughter’s glittery pencil case. I used her coloured pencils too. 🙂
