I did this painting on a paper thin wood panel. I have never seen them before. I started with two coats of gesso and then put on a coat of Gel Medium. I put these coats on with a sponge roller which gave a very interesting texture. I was hoping for a really smooth surface and got the opposite.
With all of this experimenting I just have to go with the flow. Literally!
I started by generally outlining the image in white. I now have these fluid paints in squeeze bottles so that I can do that. Then I started in with the colors and tilted, squirted and let the paint flow. I wanted more control and to not waste so much paint.
I am rather liking this one.
Blessings for a great day.
