I had such a good time painting this one. This is an acrylic painting, but I've used the acrylic watered down like watercolors. For me, this is my favorite way to use acrylics. I just don't like the feeling of thick acrylic paint. I always feel like I'm fighting with it.
The surface I used is Terraskin, that stone and resin 'paper' that I've used that is similar to Yupo. I love the textures I was able to create in the background. The reason I used acrylic paint instead of watercolor was because I wanted to use several layers of paint and I didn't want to lose the textured effect as I added more paint.
