You can see the start of the cattails at the fluid acrylic workshop. This is on canvas and it’s not photographing very well – you can see too much canvas texture, but it’s the best I can do.
I began by taping off top of the cattail; then pouring some paint and letting it drip across the canvas, right over the reeds. In retrospect, I probably should have misketed them, since now I have to go darker to cover the water marks.
Anyway, I was happy with the water-y result in the background.
I then began painting in the cattail “puff”.
