This painting is still a work in progress. I was going for a more subdued look by using diluted acrylics. I plan to add another layer of acrylic paints.
On his site, the artist John Lovett talks about using white gesso glazes on his watercolor paintings. He says the glazes can be used as a soft subtle haze to reduce emphasis. I tried the technique on this acrylic painting. Check out Lovett's site for more painting tips.
