8 1/2" x 11" Acid free paper.
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’d 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 can’t paint over prismacolor pencils, and you can’t color with prismacolor pencils on dry acrylic paint.

Another great one, still I think it's better to not go with the giant watermark splattered across the middle of the piece, and yes I know that you have another site where you have these pieces floating around without the watermark, but I just think that you lose much more than you gain by having the freaking Watermark. Your stuff is very nice, but no one will steal it and make money off of it, but whatever.

Very cool! I could do without the watermark, but you've got to protect your copyright in this day and age, right?!?

Cool how this is a legitimate landscape and yet has a lot of unique, abstract elements as well! I'm trying my hand at mixed media myself, and I'll have to take a swing at your techniques.

Thanks for sharing your work and secrets! Keep up the great work,

Awesome! Thanks for the heads up :D I sell some works to, what kind of fees does fineartamerica take?

No fees... you set the price you will get for prints they produce for you. Or you can sell originals outright w/out commissions. Free to load unlimited qty of images! Even though it sounds good it isn't great... more artists than buyers... but feedback from others is nice...

Sounds interesting kind of like this place. Yeah, there wouldn't be a lot of buyers. There's no market for art, but there never really has been, in my reading of history.
