It’s true. I don’t! I grew up on the Cape and I like the beach not ponds. I never liked the muddy bottom and not seeing the bottom when you got in deeper water. When I put this collage together it brought swimming (or not swimming) in ponds to mind. I covered my base with brown paint over which I applied a sheet of tracing paper. I colored with green Cray-pas over the tracing paper to pick up the texture lines. It gave me the impression of looking through the water to the muddy bottom. YUCK! I then added a bit of blue, water-soluble crayon and applied water to produce a nice blue wash. When it was wet it REALLY looked like pond water. Anyway, which way to the beach?!
