As promised I painted this one with acrylics. Canvas panel 30 x 24 cm. I think the panel was a way too small format for this one. Thus I had problems all through the painting. Especially with the evergreens where I only have a nylon fan brush fitting the small size. Not sure what others think about my mountain. I am still learning to paint them, here I used the knife which is also way to big for the small format.

Tom, this is super! I can't imagine how hard it was to work it out on the small size! It was a challenge on the 40by 50cm! You are certainly king of patience and little details! I love the evergreens, they look beautiful! The idea of path stopping at the cliff is very nice too.

You nailed it!

Thank you Sunnylady. I did not have a bigger canvas panel at home and recently I prefer to paint on panel rather than on paper. This is because the color stay wet a bit longer than on paper. So blending is "easier". Patience is something I learned since I paint :)
I am pleased that you like it.

Tom ,you remember we spoke one day about the media for acrylic that I used to create watercolor effect. I found the name and picture on the Amazon. May be you have something similar in your country too.

Here is the link: https://www.amazon.com/FLOOD-PPG-FLD6-04-Floetrol-Additive/dp/B000C029PM/ref=pd_sbs_201_1/147-7142909-1610254?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B000C029PM&pd_rd_r=e5d442e2-d5a3-4101-833a-fd8e64bf3b34&pd_rd_w=6Boua&pd_rd_wg=qNMDH&pf_rd_p=bdc67ba8-ab69-42ee-b8d8-8f5336b36a83&pf_rd_r=ZWFE6PY90KD7BFZDAAX2&psc=1&refRID=ZWFE6PY90KD7BFZDAAX2

Thanks Sunnylady. I have checked it. The product you have sent me would be very expensive here to order, but there are similar products from other brands which I think are the same, like: https://www.amazon.de/Solo-Goya-87210-Pouring-Fluid/dp/B07HFVSMX9/ref=pd_sbs_60_5/257-1281894-1736810?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07HFVSMX9&pd_rd_r=15d9a332-5b79-4ddd-9b5f-9a75baca74b5&pd_rd_w=Hzb2J&pd_rd_wg=aXEpD&pf_rd_p=42bf0ad8-ce6f-4127-a2f0-106727020a41&pf_rd_r=E5TABHDDTVMA43NPSP66&psc=1&refRID=E5TABHDDTVMA43NPSP66
To me it is the same, it says it makes acrylics more liquid. What do you think?

Seems like very similar. I hope there is no silicon in it as silicone create cells when liquid pour. Let me check composition on the back of the floetrol. That one is industrial grade, but I am happy to see that nowadays they make it big volumes. I will come back to you.

@Sunnylady: I have bought the product above now as I plan to do some acrylics in the next weeks. Let's see if it works better for the sky.
