Acrylic Monotype--Salsa

Acrylic Monotype--"Salsa"
This image begins a new series of art.  Generated by some great instruction, I've started making these monotypes using Golden Fluid Acrylics.  Each is painted onto a thin plastic film, dried and then using another acrylic product called gel medium, it is transferred to paper.  

The results are not entirely predictable because the transfer puts the first layer of paint onto the top of the finished print.  But this is not what the artists sees.  Planning along with spontaneity are needed.

This painting is small--about 4" x 4" on a 8" square heavy weight paper.
