Building layers in acrylic

Here is a portion of my present large commission work in progress.
The bottom photo depicts the use of cellophane and acrylic paint. After that dried and I removed the cellophane I painted in resist shapes and nature.The middle photo shows the resist layer. Here is a close up with some added flora and fauna. As I paint I build layers translucently and opaquely, I enjoy the diverse textures.
