We get ugly stages in acrylics too. I think you're off to a great start. I LOVE your fishy! It makes me think of Salish art.

I'm always so self conscious when the piece is in the "ugly stage". I try to hide it from anyone seeing it till I get past that point :D

i post pieces in the ugly stage to show people that everyone goes through that with coloured pencils. i have seen so many people give up at the ugly stage, when they should try to continue. :)

You see, I can see a swan and it looks just like a swan and I think 'How wonderful'!! My fingers would be permanently crossed if I tried to draw!!
