Just about-

6x8 inches, acrylics on canvas panel-
They are just about to open. It seems like the minute I turn my head they start moving around. They always look different when I come back.

Wow Annamaria, just been looking at your latest post, love the apple and olive both water-colour and acryl, your water-colours are slightly favourite,I think they look somehow more lively. Acryl gives me sometimes the feeling it's a bit headstrong, do you have that feeling too?
Am I mistaken or do you work for a much longer time in watercolours, they are very good! x

Yes, Renilde you are right. I started off with oils after art school but since I had my second daughter I stopped oils and taught myself to use watercolors because they were so child friendly! When my first three children grew up a little I worked as an illustrator and watercolor again was very useful. A challenge though, and I totally fell in love with the medium. Now that my fourth child is older I can work again full time in the studio, and I am trying to use acrylics more consistently so that I can work a lot larger. I have to say that I am also falling in love with acrylics, even if they are challenging me a little more.
Thank you for your kind words.xx
