Acrylic Painting from start to finish.

I previously posted digital paintings in this style. But I really wanted to prove to myself that I could still paint like this in acrylics.

After painting the person, I added the broken umbrella as an afterthought. Adding a touch of red to the hat. I figured the painting needed a small touch of red.

Painting in the digital medium is just as rewarding as with traditional methods

Here’s an Orangutan I painted in Procreate. I like using the flowing hair brush to layer the hair. If I tried that using watercolor, the paper would turn to mulch? If I used acrylic, there would be the risk of overpainting so much that I’d lose the under layers. This way I can add as many layers as needed to get the depth of texture I demand if my paintings.
