  3. Hello! The 1st one was painted with acrylic paints only, I used transparent colors over opaque colors, and this is the effect that you get. On the 2nd one, I used layers of acrylic paints over collage paper, and I used all found or hand created mark-makers and stamps. The 3rd painting was created with layers of gesso, gel medium and acrylic transparent colors and glass beads. I hope this gives you some insight into the experimental mixed media works presented here. Thanks for looking and commenting!
