Step 2. The painting part is so much fun! (actually, I think it's all fun)I start painting with Golden fluid acrylics. Sometimes I don't pay too much attention to where I put colors, but for this one I created a color wheel, so I painted in a more thoughtful manner. No matter how much I layer, I want some of that first layer to show through. That's why I love the Golden fluids, translucent but high pigment content. Because I must have intense bright color.
