Dawnstar - Finished

I decided to play around with some paints I picked up recently but hadn't opened. I generally work in watercolor or gouache but have wanted to try fluid acrylics. They can be treated just like watercolor because of their transparency. Meaning I can build up the color glazing one color over another, starting light and working to dark. I really like working this way and these paints fit that process. I will be doing more this these paints in the future.

This piece was done in Golden Liquid Acrylics on  a sheet of 12" x 16" Winsor  & Newton 200lb watercolor paper.

Wow! The "golden" effect on the costume is outstanding! Lot better than just a plain old yellow color. Great impact!

Thanks Gary. I wanted a shimmer to the costume. Glad it worked for you. :)
