Details of wall textures

Textured Wall No 2, pastel on board, detail

I've used acrylic underpaintings for pastels for quite some time. But I've been keen on exploring what I could do with underpaintings and different kinds of markmaking on these for adding more textual information before painting with pastels.

These wall textures have got a lot of splashes of acrylic paints in different colours. - Some with paint straight out of the tube, others diluted with water.

The two yellow ones (centre and top left) in this detailed close-up are cadmium yellow undiluted... There are other smaller ones on the mid left in diluted ultramarine.
