Final Reflections

BearCreekBayeaux 12 Apr 2023

This was my first painting in my life!!! I'm a disabled law enforcement officer (due to a line-of-duty injury) and can't afford oil paints and the brushes so I had to use acrylics and chip brushes. I also used an 8x10 canvas because I couldn't afford the bigger ones.

Overall, I'm satisfied with my first attempt though!! There WILL be many, many more!!!! I'm absolutely LOVING it!!!!❀️❀️

PLEASE offer any criticism, tips or help!!!!πŸ™



Good Morning from Germany .it looks good for a first try, then also in acrylic. Practising and practising again, don't be afraid to make mistakes. Take individual parts (only trees, only mountains, etc.) and try to improve this. YouTube will help too. Many videos about technique and tricksπŸ˜ŽπŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ

Thanks a bunch Dirk and good morning to you from New Orleans, LA, USA!! Funny you should say that....I sat today and just painted evergreens lol. Gonna do the same thing tomorrow!! I'm THOROUGHLY enjoying my newfound hobby!!!!❀️

Hey B., you can also use canvasboards, they are not so expensive and take a look at the articles here in the forum, they can also help. 😎

Thanks D!!! Appreciate the help!!!πŸ‘

A nice first painting BCB! I have never tried acrylic so no tips from me sorry. Just practice practice practice lol!

Nice job. My first was not nearly as good.

Thanks ia!!! I hope to be doing another in a couple weeks!!!
