Here is a small painting on TerraSkin. This time, I used watercolor instead of acrylics. It was a bit harder to build layers since the watercolors are very liftable on the TerraSkin. The one exception was the color that I used in the sky. For some reason, these blues didn't want to lift and, of course, I started with the sky and wasn't very careful because I expected to be able to lift off my messy areas. The blues I used were ultramarine and cerulean which aren't staining colors so I'm not sure why that happened. I think I'll try this scene on a larger scale with the acrylics and do some pouring.
We used to go to Lake Powell every year on a houseboat so I have lots of pictures from there. Lake Powell is so beautiful with the sculptural rocks and the natural blue/orange complementary color scheme. Nature's so amazing! The sky there really is ultramarine blue at the top blending into cerulean blue at the horizon. No wonder I like using those colors in my skies. Of course, we don't see those kind of skies here in So. Cal. but I do know they exist.
