The Great Northern Pine Troll


This piece is a little different for me in that it's done in acrylic. I've been wanting to transition away from the gouache and or watercolour that I've been using steadily now for the last 10 years or so. Gouache is tricky at the best of times and although I have become somewhat used to it I find myself still struggling against it's limitations. What I'm really looking forward to now is working larger - although this one is 8 x 10. I'm hoping to get a bit more ambitious in the summer when I anticipate my next break. Until then I'll keep up these little experiments and try to get a feel for this new (to me) paint.
