My Girl Mixed Media Canvas with ColourArte

Hello my fellow Colour-Artistes!  I love mixed media, and ColourArte has just the perfect paints to use in your projects.  I am working with a different base from my "norm", and I am also using a different medium for the base.  I usually begin with a canvas and gesso, but this time, I am beginning with an 8"x10" piece of 140 lb. mixed media paper and a layer of white absorbent ground.  

To help you see my process, I made a short video tutorial.   So let's play!

Here a a few close-ups for you.
