Discover a fun technique for using acrylic paints diluted with water for a free and flowing effect on canvas or watercolor paper. Artist Peter John Reid uses spray bottles to achieve a look similar to airbrushing as he moves the spray across the surface. With this method, it’s easy to apply vibrant color and texture, creating tree canopies with ease. Finally, if working on paper, Peter demonstrates how to mount and seal your finished painting on a wood panel using acrylic gel medium.
