I began with 11" x 11" piece of Fabriano Artistico 300lb. rough watercolor paper, taped all around to a masonite board. Then I laid on a mixture of Golden Light Molding Paste and Golden Fiber Paste. I used a palette knife and then kind of patterned and striated the surface with a stiff brush. Let that dry overnight.
This is the underpainting, done with gouache, DSmith wc sticks, and some pastels. All along mucked up variously with:
✱ Schmincke AQUA "effect spray"
✱ W & N Granulation Medium, sprayed on
✱ alcohol, also sprayed on
I was going to put various greens over the magenta areas, but I kinda like this.
Hmmm. Must contemplate . . . .
