So this painting is a textured abstract floral painting created using gel mediums and acrylic paint. I think it’s a good next painting to complete after our first project, as this one gets us using fun mediums and playing with texture and colour. It also is a little more involved in the colour mixing area, but I’ll show you exactly how I made my colours.

This painting is great for beginners or anyone else, you can make a fun painting because you want to, regardless of your skill level!
So let’s get started!
