How one can let the paints flow in watercolor painting, I meanwhile know pretty well. For this motif, I wanted to let acrylic paints flow and kept the shapes very abstract. Unlike watercolor paints, the acrylic paint is not absorbed very well by the paper. Therefore, watercolor painting is better suited for this method. Nevertheless, I am completely satisfied with the result. Doreen.
