This is a painting I’m currently working on. I was having trouble achieving the brightness and depth I wanted in the dark colours so I experimented with adding washes of acrylics over the top. The photo shows the end result at the top. This is a technique I will definitely be using again and can highly recommend. It is important to water down your acrylics, however, or they block out the watercolour underneath.
