Finished?

So, I've decided its much harder to work with acrylics than it is for watercolors. I've decided to wait to put paint onto the canvas' until I get a feel for the medium. I found out a friend of mine paints and I told her about the new addition to my artistic world. She told me they have cavnas pads (I told you I know NOTHING about acrylics, but I should of guess as much) and gave me a sheet to practice on. Well I decided I should outline something and sort of color in to see what happens. So this is how it begun:

And its completely changed each time I sit down (I think I've changed it 4 times now?)...This is what its become thus far:


And here's another one...(don't ask me why the hearts...I didn't realize it was a theme).

I've purchased 4 different brands of paints now, trying to see which I like better than the next, or if I can even tell a difference. Thus far, I have no idea. I know which one I like best, the Lascaux...but that's only dependant on the packaging:) I did find another art store that I prefer over Sterling Art. Its called Art Supply Warehouse, located in Westmisister. Most of their stuff is discounted, and they sell oh so many supplies (including Kidrobot stuff - who makes the Zipit I love to buy).

Anyways...I'm going to try and paint something else, like a tree or sunset or something...anyways, we'll see what happens. I'll keep you posted.
