This is a mixed media painting I finished a couple of months ago. I was experimenting with watercolor crayons over acrylic ink washes. I did a background wash in acrylic inks in several colors and then covered the entire surface with crinkled saran wrap, and allowed it all to dry. Then I looked at the images that appeared and saw a fish/underwater creature and decided to develop that image. I love linear design, so decided to use the watercolor crayons to further develop the image and then added linear textural design with repeated shapes and colors. It is pretty wild, but then I love COLOR!
