    a few paintings with acrylics

    I have been trying some traditional media on freetime at school, I feel like it's very therapeutic

    I am not that used to painting with traditional media, but I'm learning as I go. Help on this department will be much appretiated

    Nice - not really much help to offer exactly - looks like you draw fairly well so it's just a matter of getting used to how you want to paint with the medium. Painting is a bit more about shape, planes and form than drawing...and just watch your values. I totally dig the weird, cosmic atomic bubble painting thing!

    Holy shit! That first cave scene blew me away with the light and atmosphere. Love it. Also really like the colours in the warm red mountain scene with the scruffy bridge in the foreground.

    Seconded about not being able to offer much help in a critical sense. I get the feeling these were more for the personal experience of trying out an unfamiliar medium than anything else, and it definitely shows that you had fun and found it therapeutic. Great stuff.

    The first two looks great ! I think there is some problem on the foreground of the last painting, it look a bit confused in term of volume and prespective.
