Acrylic on paper

During lockdown in 2019, I decided to embark on an art challenge. I bought (via social distancing) my first ever small set of acrylic paints and after a few trial runs, this is the first ever painting I completed in acrylic. The still life objects were items I had around my flat that looked interesting and easy to paint. I am a beginner – my only previous experience was drawing, and an occasional watercolour.
