Love the energy Mark, a lovely painting

Thanks Julie and Margaret, I really do like puffins!

Mark, great mark making very energetic, how did the test go? Did you achieve your goal?

Great frantic activity of the birds well caught. Great painting.

Powerful stuff Mark, a real sense of movement and energy. Love the style. Nice work.

Well the test went very well. Adding a little Golden extender to my acrylics kept them from skinning in the palette and I just checked and many hours later it is still wet in the palette. Going to try this for plein air next.

Super frenzied action and a feeling of chaotic flight. I love puffins. Bri

So much energy and great movement in this. Just love puffins

Brilliant, I love it.

Wonderful free expression - love it. Would like to achieve something like this one day!!

Such vitality in your brush marks and chosen colours - it's beautiful.


Hang on Studio Wall

I started with a charcoal drawing and progressed to acrylic. This was an exercise to try out acrylic extender.
