Greetings. Trying to learn this new technique This is 12x16 I need to fix the sky and the foreground . I took old Hobbyist's advice sort of and added salt to the right mountain underpainting (Jim advised marble dust) which helped the top layer break up as it was rolling on the underpinting giving a more broken texture. I find the salt gives the painting a more savory flavor and pairs well with Bordeaux. I was trying to emulate Kevin Hill trying to adapt some of his techniques to acrylics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKe2xnBkG_g

Great job, Christopher. Another thing I have used in the past is fine clean sand. Try aquarium sand. My local pet store has 5 pounds for about $6 US dollars.

Looks very rugged. The glacier seats the mountains well. Really like this.

Looks good. You know you are a seasoned artist when you start using salt.

Very nice, great info about the things to add to break up the texture.
