Purple Flowers Stage Six

I am also painting on a different paper than I normally use, Fabriano 140 lb cold press. I generally use Arches 140 lb cold press which I love. But since I was using the acrylic I wanted the paint to sit on top of the surface a little more. Worked well for the acrylic part. It is a little frustrating now that I am doing the layered watercolor stuff. I thought about painting the entire painting with acrylic but I have so much more control with watercolor… funny right? Most people think of it as so unforgiving. But it is what I know and love. I love the brushes and the paper.
