Tonal Painting – finished

Leave a comment

Today we completed the tonal painting. It was a good experience working with the black and white paint to create this painting.

I like the way the acrylic paint mixed with water went onto the canvas. I was able to leave some of that underpainting in the shadows and the background which I’m happy about.

It is not perfect – there are many things I could still change or add to, but I had to stop somewhere. It is going to be interesting to apply this to the limited colour palette we are going to work on next.

So, I have completed my first acrylic painting – putting paint onto canvas wasn’t so scary after all .
