So this is a painting I started last night. I have some changes that I want to make to it but love it for the most part...

This what I used as a reference.

I couldn't get a good picture of it so I put up two.

18x24 Acrylic on Canvas

I really like how you cropped the image.  It gives a very intimate feeling: just her and the microphone.  Good job!

wow good job! Cool

I like working in Acrylic, sometimes its a pain in the butt to work with but it has it's good outcomes.

Illustrations, paintings and other knick knacks.

Party time all the time.

I've only worked in oils once... Acrylic is more economical for me plus I like to work fast. I only do paintings in one or two sittings. Although I'm going to practice trying to take my time with a large scale painting,.. eventually.
