This painting wins the prize for the most fun to paint. I've always loved to paint Koi - which you know if you've been following my blog for any length of time - but painting them on Terra Skin is wonderful! The surface, along with using acrylics like watercolors, allowed me to get the feeling of water and know that I could layer without disturbing my previous painting. I am going to continue fiddling with this a bit more but I wanted to post it for this week's painting. It took SO long to paint. It's large, 25" x 35", and a lot of the time was spent waiting for layers to dry. This was painted with a combination of pouring and direct painting. So far, this probably has about 20 thin layers of paint, which gives it a wonderful translucent quality. I took WIP pictures which I will make into a slide show later this week (if the pictures turned out) so you can see my process.
