Swash That Buckle!

5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and we're back. After a long rest I'm back with my latest creation: a Pirate themed painting. This image was rendered using acrylic paint on canvas measuring 41 x 41 cm, which is big! Balancing the colour was really tricky but through the process I started to remember how to paint again. Previous renderings have mostly been in watercolour so acrylic was slightly trickier in that it is a less fluid medium. However the colour and finish are flat and bold, which is what I like.
