Texture is created using several implements that give awesome textures just waiting for the design and composition to bring them to life. My first attempt using this technique was unsuccessful, so I reapplied the mixture and played with different motions to let the underneath colors come through. I felt several emotions when I first saw this and stayed within my plan to create movement and texture. The more neutral colors were pleasing and their placement leads you through the painting.
