acrylic fun

Charlie Eleanor DeRuiter

I started experimenting with other mediums five years ago. I have have enjoyed discovering the various effects I can achieve with them no don't worry about making it perfect any longer. There is great freedom in allowing myself to try without worrying about whether it will be good or right, but just to enjoy the freedom of creating. My heart still lies with oil painting though; the richness and depth that oil paints offer is unparalleled, and it continues to captivate me. I still love these paintings though and am thankful to be able to paint and draw with other mediums too.

It is only when we are no longer fearful that we begin to create.
