i did this last year for my art class...and let me tell you, it took for-ev-er (im painfully slow and meticulous... Lips sealed)







it's a redo of a painting by..degas?  i think?  i could be totally wrong.........anywa ys, it's pretty big, and it took me an hour to do like two square inches  Tongue  does anyone have any good tips for working with acrylics?  like..to work faster or anything?  i'm still kind of new with them i guessssss

Since acrylics dry incredibly fast, and you can layer up paint with acrylics, you can paint large masses of color that represent something (like say the basic skin hue) then go in and paint the fine toning and highlights and shadows.
