What are you most proud of? I"m most proud of the raw, choppy lines that I maintained with this piece. Most of my acrylic pieces have clean lines and are monotoned. This pushed me to blend colors beyond my usual tendencies. Being on water I wanted to allow movement in the image as well as show age on the boat.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I stood up the entire time with this project. Most times I settle in with a coffee and fun background music, sitting at my workstation. But this one kept me on my feet the entire time! This might have helped me to keep the pace moving quickly, but I also think standing allowed me to view more angles and move around before the paint dried (acrylics dry quickly). Don't be afraid to move around a bit, and have fun with it!
