Mixed Media Trees

Recently I taught a couple sessions of my workshop, "Fun with Fluid Acrylics." The focus was primarily acrylics that, as the name implies, come in liquid form. These paints can be used much like watercolor.  This workshop explored not only the watercolor-like properties but also how to incorporate mixed media techniques into your paintings. One of the mixed media techniques included the use of Masa rice paper.

The tree paintings shown here started with a loose dripping wash and later included rice paper for the trees and some of the foregrounds.
