12 x 36 inch acrylic "tulips in a vase"

I thought I would post this painting even though it is a long way from being finished. Again some more practice with acrylics and this time I did a full grey scale painting first. I am determined to teach myself the process of glazing in acrylics. It is a very slow and tedious (for me anyway) way of painting. I usually try to paint the subject directly with little layering when I paint in oils, so this method is a challenge for me. I like how the painting appears to have a glow. This is due to the light bouncing through the many thin, transparent layers of paint. I will post the finished painting again in due course.
