Fooling around with water-based media

These are some very quick marks with watered-down acrylic paint on watercolor paper.  This will be the substrate for what I am certain will be a mixed-media something-or-other.  This is done on 140 lb hot press paper, and it was my intent to do a very quick, messy coverage of the paper, then stamp into the paint and allow it to run.  The parent sheet is 22x30 inches.  The following are details of the painted paper:

and here are detail shots of the back of the same paper:


  1. Nice base for future work.
    Great colors.

  2. i love these. The feeling of freedom and color mix is terrific!

  3. I'm enjoying the freedom and flow of colors and pattern, you've created wonderful texture. I can't wait to see what you do with these!

  4. Thanks! I'm going to make an accordian book ala Diana Trout. I'll post more images when I get it a bit further down the road.


I love to hear from my readers! Please drop me a line!
