Crocodile Tears by bjornik Crocodile Tears by bjornik
MADE 2009 Semifinalist
Acrylic on Paper
24" x 36"

This is my first attempt at acrylic and I wasn't very happy about the fact that this took me two weeks to finish yet it still lacks the gradation I could have achieved with watercolor. But I'm proud that I made another big painting. You can see the details blogged at [link]

Anyway, this is a follow up to last year's entry, Red Threading. Dedicated to all the crocs out there! Thank you for viewing!:D

EDIT: Updated with a larger image. Thank you for the kind comments and favorites everyone. Enjoy!:)

Lol the first thing I thought of when I saw the title is "Oh no! Did someone tell it Steve Irwin died?!" lol. I'm not crackin' on your pic, but I laughed when I realized how it didn't relate in the slightest to him...

But on another note...

Whoa! You're attention to detail is quite extraordinary! This is fantastic, and the bright colors are very... bright, lol. Honestly, though, it's great!

The whole thing with the egg and the hidden world within a familiar object reminds me of Hieronymus Bosch's work. :)

First attempt at acrylics? I hate you. Mine looked like kindergarten crap. I even tossed it out after exams because I was so ashamed of it. :raincloud:

Haha! I'm sorry:hug: but we've all been there. I applied watercolor technique which is what I'd been used to by the way.:D
