Treading Water by shellrose Treading Water by shellrose
Do you ever feel like you are just trying to keep your head above water? This painting is an expression of that struggle. It shows how sometimes we can be so focused on not sinking that we don't open our eyes and see that the answer is right in front of us.

Hi there! Yep, I used acrylics and then added the wave-like texture with heavy gel medium and this cool gel medium with tiny glass beads in it. Also, added some metallic copper highlights in the hair and bathing suit. If you have a chance, take a look at my YouTube video showing this painting being made!

That's Wonderful! I amn't any good at painting! especially with watercolour! it's too runny =0
But i seem to love using acrylics! it's way easier to use for me and you can put a whole load on haha!
And I didn't know you got paint/gel stuff with little beads in it! That's so cool :O
Anyways i watched your YouTube video! It's brilliant to see how you painted this picture!
I'm off to look at your other videos just now! :D x
