80 (who?)
Cassia - Acrylics by Aurella Cassia - Acrylics by Aurella
Size: 8 x 10"
Medium: Acrylics
eBay Auction: [link]

Well some of you may recognize this painting, because it's based off an older and smaller painting that I did. I really wanted to try out acrylics, because I feel that they may be better for the style that I'm trying to achieve. So I thought it'd be a great opportunity to redo this image. It's always been one of my favorites, but I wanted to make it bigger and in different colors! So here's the result of it. =)

What do you all think about the result of the acrylics versus my usual watercolor paintings?

Wow! This is so beautiful. You are REALLY talented with acrylics!!! I think I like this version a little more, because it does look so crisp and smooth. Though I also love the colors you can achieve with watercolors as well! Though I do like this color scheme. Lol! I do think you should start using more acrylics, maybe doing some mixed-media pieces to get the best of both worlds?

Aww thanks Melissa! I'm so glad you think so. =) I've been thinking about doing a mixed piece, but I'm having a hard time deciding what type of paper to use! I need a smooth paper that won't buckle, but so far I haven't been able to find one. =( Thanks again for your comments! :hug:

You're welcome hun! Yeah, I definitely think a mixed piece would be so awesome... what type of paper are you using right now? I was using Arches Hot Press watercolor blocks for my watercolor, ink & acrylic paintings, and it was really smooth and didn't buckle at all. The blocks are the ones that have the glue around most of the edges, so it holds the paper straight, and when you're done, you just use a thin letter opener or whatever to break the glue and remove the piece of paper. Dick Blick has them for $20 for the 9 by 12 size, and there's other sizes too and such. :hug:
