So knowing that, I went ahead and will paint using texture on the blue-tailed skink I started. Here he is so far. I used China Markers in white to put down a resist for the grates, then painted with a mixture of colors for the black. Then covered the skink with masking fluid so I could go in and be loose with the textured background. That, I started by putting down texture medium (even more good stuff) and then playing with color, putting it down, splattering with water and with more paint to get more texture). Fun. Next I'll paint in the skink.
