Pattie: Transparency

In small ways I keep experimenting with how acrylic uses transparency because the dry time is so quick that I can try many things quickly.

Light colors over darker colors, or darker colors over lighter colors, which method yields the highest chroma? Also I’m dealing with which paints have the highest transparency and how they effect other colors. The yellow I have is particularly interesting as it goes on super transparent that I don’t think it’s even tinting the canvas, but when I pull back it has a definite effect. All in all I’m having a lot of fun with acrylic and I’m taking it as far as I can. I’m even more excited to at some point go over it with a layer of oil, the true experiment.
