This began as a color experiment trying watercolor over an acrylic wash on watercolor paper, and turned into a pure acrylic painting. I am in love with color of all flavors. This is Golden acrylics in heavy body, fluid, and high flow on a 3″ x 4″ sample of 260 lb. Arches cold-press watercolor paper graciously provided to me by one of the artists at Blick.
I started by soaking the paper with a wash of Golden fluid and high-flow acrylic paint, dried that with a hair dryer, and decided to go back in with more acrylic instead of watercolor. I put some purple heavy body paint down in Cobalt Violet hue mixed with a bit of Titan Buff in places, sprayed it with a small spray bottle, and it seemed to declare itself. So, I tried to respond to what was in front of me, and brought out what I saw in the swirls of color, defining the shapes with light and dark tones. I would love to know what you see.
Have a wonderful Sunday, and soak up all the peace and restoration your little hairy heart desires. *flinging paint to the atmosphere* ❤
