Pink  8″ x 6″ acrylic on paper

Gauguin‘s color ! I just wanted to try it. So I’m painting some little guys which is good. I need to remember how to use my brushes. More than that. I need to remember how to paint. My hand needs to figure out how acrylics work on paper.  I used to paint in oils on canvas. This is different. It’s not easy for me which is a good thing.
