Aerial View is mixed media on handmade paper. The painting was then mounted to a cradled panel so it is ready to hang without a frame. I often start several paintings at one time and finish them when “they speak to me”. Even though I looked at this start a number of times, it just didn't speak to me. Along came a new product that I wanted to try – Golden High Flow Acrylic. I pulled this painting out and began finishing it. The painting was started with some texture mediums and ink. It was about 80% finished and the remaining 20% was finished using these new paints. I was extremely pleased with the glazing properties of the transparent colors. I particularly love the lower right hand corner where I was able to glaze purple over the yellows and neutrals.
