Two New Acrylics

 Yellow Wild Flowers
Lonely Tulip

I love the bright acrylic colors.  The Tulip isn't a real true color.  The Yellow Wild Flower is pretty close.
It is hard to photo for some reason.  The Yellow wild flowers are behind our barn, and on the farm. I don't know the correct name for them.  They are pretty small in size.

Acrylic Experiment-Tall Tulips

12x12 Canvas                                                                                                        12x12 Canvas
This started out as a watercolor and wasn't happy with it, So I decided to collage it, and tried that, and wasn't happy with it that way, so I cut it to fit the size of a 12x12 canvas, (2 of them) and glued it down on the canvas using my gloss medium. I left it for a couple weeks, wanting to make sure it stayed glued.
Then I painted it with acrylic paint, some Golden, some just odd brands I had picked up. The color is not true on here. The painting is a little darker, and the camera seemed to grab onto the blues. The red is also very bright.
It could be hung as one..the top one, Or both..the bottom one wouldn't   work alone, for obvious reasons!
I hope to learn more about using acrylics because I love the bright vivid color you can get with it.
This wasn't varnished yet either, and that makes a difference.
