A and B

my first acrylic painting in ages! Well, pretty much since I graduated from high school many years ago XD (well, some time in the mid-last decade).  I was so unsure where to start at first so I asked A and B to pose for me.  I am so unused to the workflow of an acrylic painting and was frustrated at how quickly the paint dries, and so many times I thought I totally screwed it up that I was constantly so aggravated and anxious and everything during the painting!  I’m surprised this ended up as well as it did!  It's obv a lot simpler in style and composition than my digital art, but I think I'm going to take it back even further with acrylics and limit colours and try to concentrate on values and form and lighting just to get the hang of the medium before I do anything more complicated!
