Bonnie's acrylic painting Red Kite

from: bonitaartwork

Hi, I started the painting (my 1st acrylic landscape) in Fred bell's acrylic landscape class through MKE REC DEPT at end of June..   I finished it in 2 sessions in my back yard.
I put the red Kite in because I needed some type of human element...otherwise I found the painting sort of boring.

I just wanted MSC members to know that I have started to paint, rather than use pastels.  I am so excited about exploring this art part of me.

Milwaukee Sketch Club at Hoyt Park 6/22/17

 Quite a few people showed up. We've had a lot of rain so the river was pretty high and muddy, but no biting insects.
