New year better handle on acrylics

Following the demonstration by our wonderful (and patient) teacher I tackled acrylics again, this time working on a background painted in mahogany-red acrylic first with charcoal, then following the lines in dark brown and finally working on the picture with a range of browns, oranges and white for an actually pretty good likeness!  Really enjoyed this, feel I'm beginning to get a grip on how to paint.  John encouraged us not to refine too much and the result is expressionistic and lively
