Autumn Berries

A new piece with a lot of mixed-media experimentation.

It started out as a watercolor drawing on Vlieland – an island in front of the Dutch coast. I then added additional half-transparent layers to paint over with ink and acrylics. A couple of work-in-progress shots of layers are on my patreon page. I plan to use the same mixed-media approach in my following work, so the lessons learned will be useful.
