So I am attempting a painting, with a small amount of collage in the form of a quote from John Galsworthy
"Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives."
I am struggling a bit as I am not really sure if I am using the paint correctly, but it is the only way I will learn.......... this is where I am so far, apologies for the poor photography.
I am actually wondering if oils may be better for me, as I am continually adding medium to try and blend and stop the acrylic drying out, but this is the nearest I have ever got to painting a portrait in acrylics (I did do a skull once at college, but that was easier because it didnt have fur and was smooth!) so I am going to see it through to the (hopefully not bitter) end!
Any advice welcome.
