OK, since so many I watch on http://www.furaffinity.net/ like to post rough stuff, weird stuff and experimental stuff, I thought I would too! This is a 3 x 4 (cropped down a bit to give sharp border) Bristol paper with a micron marker circle. I then wetted the area around the circle and added spots of very wet color (Acrylic), let it set a few, washed over all the color area with a wet brush and then sprinkled salt on the whole thing (watercolor people know the technique). After it dried I used very watered down Acrylic to paint the "pearl". I am trying to get some new looser techniques to try and this may show up in the next small picture I am working on.
