Sitting at the Table - original acrylic portrait painting

I was sort of looking down on the model as she sat at a table. Working as quickly as I could - since acrylics dry so fast - maybe I was a bit intimidated by this quality and was furiously brushing the background while the paint was still workable.  I did add a little water to the piles of paint, which helped a lot.  Acrylic is a medium I really want to get comfortable with and will keep working with it.  The support is 6 x 6" Strathmore acrylic paper.  Thanks for looking!
