My apologies for the recent absence.
Work has kept me busy.
That said, I always reserve Wednesday afternoon to splash around in my paint.
This is acrylic paint on yupo.
When it dried I covered it with a thick watercolor mixture and this time for some reason
got the beautiful background as the water color paint reacted with the acrylic paint.
It has never done this before but I hope it does again!
When the water color mixture is dry you can sketch your design on with chalk and then with a wet brush lift away the watercolor paint using bits of paper towel to blot away the color.
This is one I did a while ago. The red is the watercolor and the gold is an acrylic background. You
can see that only my brush strokes show in the bottom one, no reactions.
Here is a background (complete w/blue tape) awaiting transformation.
Thanks for stopping by!
Ooooops! I forgot a bloom for you
I smelled these before I saw them, they are so tiny. They have a wonderful coconut scent.
