My first acrylic painting in 7 months

This is a demo I did for my picturebook class at UVU. I was happy that I was still able to do it. I have to admit that I was a little nervous but I couldn't let my students know it.

Also - we're starting our Hansel and Gretel assignment tomorrow - Monday the 15th. Several people are going to do the project but do not want me to post the results online. That's absolutlely fine - I'll only post the images that you want me to post.
Good luck on it - My hope is that you can add another great image to your portfolio!


  1. No matter how many illustrations I do in Photoshop I will always love to use physical media. There is just something about using a real brush to push real paint across real paper that I can't get from a tablet and stylus. So I like to switch back and forth between media as often as I can.

    Hansel and Gretel is coming along nicely. I'm trying to branch out of my usual subject matter and do something scary. I hope it works out.

  2. Hey Will! Great acrylic painting! You still have it! Love your Hansel and Gretel challenge. I may take you up on it.

  3. it's wonderful, you had nothing to worry about!

  4. I agree Will - (great name!) I will say that when I'm working with a pencil and or paint there is a more satisfying feeling - the tooth of the paper and the direct connection with the medium. Photoshop is so new I'm getting a different high from using it. I love em both!

    Hope you find time Jack - the more the merrier!

    Thanks Karen!
