I would pick 10-12 various colored papers (standard size) and then mix a specific acrylic paint color that I like and put some of that color on most of the pieces of paper using a painting knife or a brush in a very free flowing manner. Then I would mix another wonderful color and do it again and maybe more as I feel it needs. Once dry, I would look at them (even with a mirror and upside down) and decide how to embellish them with ink and color pencil. Doing these is so much fun and I hope it shows. I also enjoy the incompatibility between the actual media I use. You cannot paint over prismacolor pencils, and you cannot color with prismacolor pencils on dry acrylic paint.
