So I add some stronger colors in the cypress roots, the rocks (which were looking like baked potatoes) and the falling water. Probably too much, but that is how acrylics work for me: I get things too strong, then I tame them down, then they get too tame, so I punch up the color, then they are too strong again... You get the cycle.
After almost 20 years of Industrial Engineering, I decided to try to align my life with my values and priorities. Now I am an artist, part time ranch worker and part time church staff (strategic planning). That leaves almost no time for housekeeping, which is fine with me and my dust allergy!
My art business is called Texas Hill Country Art, and I mostly paint Texas wildflowers, landscapes, animals and such. I often paint commissions of people's favorite vacation photos.
Watercolor and acrylic paintings are also available in a greeting card format. ACEOs (baseball card sized paintings) are sometimes studies for my big paintings and sometimes just silliness, like my Ballerinas in Trouble series.
