So Far, So-So

Here is the new painting, my first journey into acrylics. The beginning is the same process I was using before: after the drawing, which I sealed with PVA size, I painted some washes with acrylic.

After that I would usually switch to oils for the rest of the painting. So, here is the piece with the first few layers of paint. I'm not used to the consistency, or the short drying time (although I bought a kind which supposedly dries slower), and the dry color is rather flat. It is what it is.
