This is my first attempt at painting a landscape, please keep in mind that it is far from done and I am just starting to use acrylics, which i am starting to enjoy more and more. I started taking a 5 week workshop with a local artist Andrew Giffin, who is very helpful and has a wonderful way of working with people. I am hoping that I can get a couple more started so if I run into any problems i can get some help with them over the next few weeks. I started this painting on Wednesday night and only worked on it at home for a bit last night, but I ca see improvement, when i first started it I hated it :(, but as I work on it I think it might just turn into something 🙂

Thank you Toemailer
Outstanding for a first attempt! No one would ever guess.
Thank you Barb, I felt the same way about them, but it gets a little better every time I use them 🙂
This painting is coming along beautifully – the colors and techniques are great. Acrylics fascinate and yet scare me to death – I stick to oils and watercolor and wish I knew how to handle acrylics:)
Thank you Joan and Jeanne
Krista, it's beautiful. I am looking forward to seeing it completed. Enjoy the medium, it's great fun.
All the best to you.
Your work is lovely 🙂
Thank you Liz, it will be interesting to see how it turns out 🙂
For someone who has never done landscapes – WOW. And in an unfamiliar medium as well. Well done Krista, it's terrific.
Thank you Martine
Beau travail… Ce chemin nous emmène loin… et j'aime.
Thanks Vicki, I can relate they are definitely frustrating sometimes, watercolor is so much easier 🙂
You are doing great with the acrylics. I have tried to play with them a couple of times but I haven't had any success. This one is looking good!
Thanks Carl, who are you taking classes from? Let me know how you like the oils
Love the colors in this. It will be great. I start Oil classes next week. I can't wait.
Thank you Manon and Brian, I am going to try the oils soon (I have had oils now for at least 2 years lol) mind you there is not much that I don't have in way of art supplies 🙂
Looks awesome, Krista!! I'm glad you're starting to like acrylics!!
So far, this is magnificent. I think it looks great! Yes, I go between oil and acrylics, but always come back to the latter for many reasons.
I like what I see!
Enjoy your week,
