Well, this was a fun experiment! I have a lot of pieces of plexiglass that are long and narrow that wouldn't work for framing my watercolor paintings but I couldn't bring myself to get rid of them because they seemed like they could be used for something.
I decided to try painting one side with acrylic and use the unpainted side as the 'glass' to protect the painting when framed. To have this work, I had to paint "backwards", meaning that the details in the foreground of the picture needed to be painted first, which was the spray and foam, and progress toward the colors behind.
I wasn't expecting much but I'm really happy with the result. I'm sure I will be trying this technique again.
