Paintings; the 7 deadly sins.

We had to experiment with acrylic paints and different distressing techniques to give it a cool grunge-y effect! The prof encouraged us to use sandpaper and rubbing alcohol to work away at different layers of paint, and these were my experimental pieces for the theme "The 7 Deadly Sins"




This last piece is also Greed. This last one is what I'm going to try and recreate for my final!!
I've been experimenting with style in these pieces too, mostly because my usual style doesn't usually include acrylic - but I actually really like the results of these! Even if they're just test runs ;)

Hopefully I can be as satisfied with the final piece! Gulp!
