Getting there.  I worked on this one more time after I took this photo, but I thought I would post the before first and then the after.  I hope I haven't ruined it...but I am always pushing the envelope and sometimes I just have to suffer the consequences.  This painting is acrylic on paper.  I am working with fluid acrylics because they can create such strong, beautiful colors and you only need a few to mix a wide variety of hues.  I love working with them!  The paper is hot press watercolor with gesso applied to it.  It makes a strong surface to work on.  I began the painting with watercolors, but the acrylics took over.  I guess I am Waiting for the Blooming Vines.
