After years talking, asking questions, reading, and playing around with water colors, I finally took the plunge. I pulled out the big boy paints and just tried them out.
Nic Klien is a good friend of mine and I've been mining him for info for a while now. He's a great painter and he's given me some great tips so I decided to quit being a little sissy and just throw some paint around. I pull out the acrylics and this is what came about. I didn't want to try to get too bold and go for crazy colors at the moment, just tried to keep it in the sepia world.
This is a very rough first step, but that's what first steps are. There meant for bumping and scraping and getting a little hurt in the process. This is me trying to understand a new medium and after playing with it for a day, the fear is now gone. It's time to get a little crazy and see what I can pull off on my second time around.
