    Driving myself nuts trying to figure out the process you use with the acrylics/colored pencil layering. I actually lay in bed at night wondering…….lSo very beautiful

      I don’t want you to lose any more sleep. Basically, I use the pencil and/or colored pencil along with the acrylic to subtly define shapes, to add a thin, easy to control veil of color, or to add detail that I can’t get with a brush. I start with acrylic, and when it seems to need pencil, I cover the area with matte medium, as the pencil won’t adhere to acrylic properly otherwise. Then after I finish drawing, I seal it in with more medium. Then paint more, draw more, add collage sometimes, layer upon layer, always covering with matte medium before using the colored pencils. its just a continuous back and forth, layer upon layer.
      And now you know how its done.
      Thanks for your positive comments.
