Create Flowers with Paint Splatters

Paint flowers in a rush with a flick of your brush. This flower garden painting is based on a tutorial by Tammy Northrup, who has a lot of splattered paintings similar to the one she highlights in her tutorial I referenced.

She suggests watercolors for the background. Since I only own acrylic paint, I watered the paint down to make it thinner and easier to spread. What’s the difference between the two paints? Mainly, watercolor tends to be more transparent, making it great for layering. Acrylic paint is opaque, so you can’t add a transparent layer over other layers. Acrylic also dries faster.
