This painting was done nearly two years ago (full post about it here) and was also for Illustration Friday. Done in craft paint before I had any idea of what I was doing and while my youngest ws still a baby so done at the speed of light, but I have to say, despite its simplicity, there is something about those hands…and the fact it was an answer to the prompt ‘afterwards’.
It has been a long time since I’ve participated in Illustration Friday, (past efforts) but it is a great challenge to play in with some absolutely fantastic artists participating, so I’ve been looking for some inspiration in response to their challenges for some time now. I finally was determined enough to sit down and actually work at it and I came up with a little Life Inspired to hopefully be a vague answer to the challenge word ‘teacher’.
I had several technical difficulties with this piece as it is a very new medium to me. I made some dumb-ass mistakes, but I’ve learnt and hopefully won’t do them again.

So do you think I have enough challenges tied into this post? ::grin:: Don’t worry, I have a piece for each as today was a good art day. Exhilaration, acrylic on board, approx. 300 x 300 mm. Savour the exhilaration. ‘Savour’ is the challenge word this week over at Illustration Friday. All I could think […]
And Art Every Day Month strikes again 😀 Fallen, acrylic on board, approx. 300 x 300 mm. This is a follow on from my first acrylic painting, Embers. It turned out to be in a completely different style (I don’t seem to have a set style or medium, I’m higglety-pigglety), but is still an experiment […]
