Fourth of July
The background of this page was created with a paint I made by mixing Golden's Fluid Acrylics into white gesso. To about a tablespoon of gesso, I added 1 drop of yellow oxide, 2 drops of phthalo green and 4 drops of black. When I brushed it on, I worked quickly; purposely leaving some unpainted streaks. These bits of white add sparkle and life to a background. The image and title were from a newspaper ad.
