About 2 years ago, Victor gave me a set of acrylics and brushes for my birthday. I never ever used them until yesterday. Procrastination, I guess.
Even-though my first time painting with acrylics was a great experience in my life, this new approach was by myself, with no teacher, and that was great as well.
I must admit that I felt a little lost, so I search the web and got to this tutorial for the painting that I wanted to try.
I followed some steps from the tutorial but I didn’t use the charcoal so after the first step, I kind of followed my own path. I felt that it was more fun for me to explore and experience by my own.
Light didn’t help in this picture, but anyway, it’s just to show you some of the process.
Today was a foggy morning in San Bruno so I took a picture with natural light, now that the painting was finally dried.
It was a nice practice and I’ll try more often, I thought of using the same “sketchbook” so it gets kind of an art-journaling sketchbook.
Have a great weekend, folks!
Yes, you might already know it: I love fall.
I grew up in a city where autumn lasts only one or two weeks and I believe that might be the reason why I love fall so much: scarcity.
When I lived in Buenos Aires, I enjoyed those cool fall mornings that even when the sun is there, it’s barely warm.
Then I lived in Brooklyn, New York. I don’t have to say anything more about the season and the city because that might be “the” season to appreciate the stunningly beautiful city at its best.
Everything about fall is just so pretty: the colors, the clothes, the weather, the fruits and veggies… And fall has that smell that it’s been my favorite ever since: cinnamon.
I want to tell you also that to celebrate the season, there’s a promo available now at my online shop: FREE Worldwide Shipping*! (Promotion expires November 9, 2014 at Midnight Pacific Time. *Offer excludes Framed Art Prints, Stretched Canvases and Rugs)
Access to promo here.
I’d love to know, which is your favorite season?
