Changing focus--playing with acrylics



For some variety, I've left the watercolors aside for a bit and am doing some acrylic painting.  There are lots of flowers in my yard right now and I have 3 old canvases that needed reworking.  Gessoed them out, let them dry and began playing.  First is one I'm not terribly happy with:  Shastas and Roses.  Not enough contrast.  Shastas are lacking in definition.  Second is a bit better, Shastas alone with a lot of palette knife work.  Last is from a photo sent to me by a friend (Thanks, Anna!).  I may work this one over a bit more:  Tea and Roses.
