Well, this is the last of the chips I prepared with the bubble textures. This one is 5"x5" and is painted on 140 lb. Arches cold-pressed paper. I mixed some white gouache with my orange paint to increase the intensity. In the future, I believe I will preserve my whites ahead of time with mask before I print the bubble textures on the paper. Since the bubbles are made with acrylic fluid paints, the color cannot be lifted as in watercolor. One of these days I will get brave and do a large painting...probably koi again.

VERY EFFECTIVE and creative painting. Love what you did and in a smaller size, too. I can sure tell that you enjoy being an artist everyday.
