Description I was gearing up for a show of my art at the Borderlands Caf & Bookstore in San Francisco. And I wanted to have one more painting for my snow. So I dove into Cells. I had no real idea what Id paint when I started. First I did an underpainting in acrylic with a heavy gel medium to get some texture and to have some extra color glowing through. But I dont like how flat acrylic looks, so I layered an oil painting on top of that. I outlined some blobs in my original painting, and then filled them in to look like living cells. I used a fan brush for the halo effect, and I flicked the bristles of the fan brush to add some life with splattered dots.
