Behind the Scenes Photos of Ice Cream Cone with Chocolate and a Cherry Acrylic Daily Painting

Small realist acrylic painting of vanilla ice cream cone with chocolate and a cherry
"Standing Tall," acrylic on panel, 7" x 5".
I just thought I'd share a few progress photos I took of this daily acrylic painting. The secret to working realistically in acrylic is, as I've shared before, thin layers and a medium mix made of 70% medium (my preference is matte) and 30% water.

You can also see here that I originally included the surface the cone was sitting on, but boldly decided to cut it out in the end! Enjoy!
