I used old 10"x10" canvas that have several layers of acrylic build up, adding a nice layer of texture. The darker areas of water were blocked in first, siennas, oranges and ochres followed. Finally, overbrushing and rapid blending while the paint was still wet.
The palette consisted of dioxane purple, cobalt blue, alizarin crimson, pale yellow, yellow ochre, burnt sienna and raw umber.
