Another experiment using acrylic paint and watercolour. I found a photo of a single sunflower, and painted it with heavy body acrylics onto watercolour board.
When dry, I then did a background watercolour wash, and dropped in some granulation medium to create a bit of texture. also used a wax crayon to add some more resist.
Where the watercolour lay on top of the acrylic areas, I just wiped it off, so acrylic is a great resist with no effect on the colour intensity. I then went back to the acrylics and did some more shading on the sunflower and leaves.
Quite like the combination.
My painting inspired me to write another haiku -
Dark skies, pure sunshine
Petals curl in fond greeting
Sunflower my sweet friend
