"PASSIONATE," 11021, daily painter vibrant floral © Carol Nelson Fine Art

"PASSIONATE"
This painting is an experiment.  It's painted on yupo paper that was texturized with spider webbing  - the kind you string around your house on Halloween.  I used acrylic paints, but the effect is better using Robert Doak watercolor concentrates.

Using acrylics alters the process somewhat because when they dry, they tend to trap the webbing, making it hard to remove.  The photo does not show the intricate color flows very well.

I agree with Julie, this is another great texturing idea and I love the delicate lacy effects it leaves behind, beautiful

I like the effect of the spider webbing texturing you did in the first painting. Very nice!
