I'm playing on TerraSkin again. The more I paint on it, the more I love it! I think the textures that are created from the mixtures of water and paint are very interesting. This painting is very small but I'm getting ready to do another large poured painting on TerraSkin using acrylics. Also, I think I want to try using oils on this surface. I'll probably thin them down a lot to take advantage of the properties of the surface and to get a sense of transparency. I tend to want to make everything look like a watercolor because I love that look.
Irises are such delicate looking flowers and for this painting, I chose to paint a very dark background to make the white flower really pop. I enjoyed mixing my variety of greens. It's always a challenge to mix greens without them looking too intense and unnatural. I'm not sure why the paint manufacturers make such fake looking greens but it is easy enough to tone them down I guess.
