Back home to watercolor but with an acrylic twist!

Loved working on this! Haven’t done a real watercolor in so long that I almost cried at the delight of watching the paint run all over and do it’s watercolor-ey thing!
To top that it’s actually acrylic and it’s cradled so it’s ready to hang! How awesome is that? 😀

I think I am going to be hooked to this kind of stuff 😉

    Beautiful colors, Srishti!
    I understand your joy at returning to a watercolor approach. These last few days, I have finally been playing with oils…Although I like the vibrant colors, I miss the movement. I think it’s back to watercolors tomorrow:-)

    The colors and style of this painting are very nice. You’re so right, there is nothing like watercolor. I tried a few acrylic paintings, and it was nice to be able to correct mistakes or add highlights, but I definitely prefer watercolors.
