Caterpillar - yihsieh

Acrylic on canvas
20 x 16 inches

I had not painted with traditional mediums in a long, long time, so I decided to brush up on my painting skills over the weekend. This took four days of work.

Caterpillar sketch - yihsieh
This is the sketch that I based the painting on.

Looks like the cat will not make it…

I thought I’d be almost done here, but instead, the finished version took about another 2 days of work.

Finally finished. Look at it in higher resolution to see it better. ^^

The small storage room where I worked.

It was really nice to find some time over the summer to paint again. Also, thanks a lot to G for taking the pictures for me. She’s really awesome.

    Very nice.
    I’ve never painted with acryllic before.
    I like the sort of starry night on the upper right, and the little flowers on the bottom.

    Hehe, I see someone at your studio is an MCB major.
    I quit after Chem 1A. :p

    @Winterbraid: Thanks. ^^ I might paint something again when I have the time and the drive.
    @shijima: Acrylic is a pretty fair medium to work with since it dries so fast. Anyway, good eyes. That would be my text book.
    @Yuri Downloads: Thanks. I’m glad you thought the colors were good.

  5. Oooh nice painting! Very colourful. The only thing I’ve painted recently was a Gundam XD

    Wow, very very cool.

    You acrylic looks dry.
    And I love to draw watercolor and acryl with plenty of water. I love the transparent layers

    @Akira Eshi: I think I tend to like to use really thick and dry paint rather than wet-on-wet style, which works pretty well for me on acrylic.
