Acrylic study on gessoboard.

I was toying with the idea of doing a few acrylic paintings again. So I tried out on the study posted 6x8 ins. A cottage at the bottom of a hill, near where I live. The evening light coming from the background. It takes a while to get used to acrylics over oils, but when they work for you, they are great. I was tentative doing this painting, but I was pleased with the tones I managed to achieve. I think perhaps, it needs further work? Maybe darken the foreground, or lighten the background.

I have not decided yet whether to invest in some more acrylic paints or stick up on more oil paints. Decisions, decisions.
