A Real Challenge!

Daily Paintworks runs a "challenge" to artists each week. This week it was to paint a picture using only four tubes of paint. Here is my entry using just black, red, blue and green:

Girl with the Red Umbrella"

A lot of people don't know or don't realize the versatility of acrylic paints. I watered down my acrylics until they handled much like watercolor. In doing so I get the transparency and mixability of watercolors. In this painting I mixed the red and green to make the brown you see and I used the paper itself for white. Those artists who use acrylics, try it...its a completely different side of acrylics.
