Thank you Carole, this was very informative for me, not only from your verbal direction but also watching how you worked the acrylic pigments, the water amount (wetter / drier), and the up-close palette brush manipulations and paper to brush markings.  I will be watching these videos many times and following your example to (hopefully!) get these technique under control.
