Acrylic WIP, stage 2

Spent some time on it this morning. Mixing colors with paint rather than pencils or pastels has always been a struggle for me, and I also hate that expensive acrylic paint gets wasted! One tube that I opened came streaming out when I only wanted a little, for the Mommy Monkey's lips. So I decided that big blob of alizarin crimson would make some nice foliage...
I am definitely having fun applying said paint once I get the right color.

The box lid holds all the tubes I have to throw out..some of them are decades old!
