Than you for creating this! Very helpful and insightful! Never thought of the tracer thing, never thought of mixing media like that! I'm terrified of my acrylics but maybe this can help! One question! Do you like to outline your artwork? Like with a darker pencil or pen or just with a darker color? Because I noticed like the horses have a deep outline but it's still working with the picture! Just curious! I'm trying to get away from outlining!

Thank you for going through the trouble of making this tutorial! I have a bad habit of using each medium separately, so it was a really helpful tip to use watercolours and acrylics together. I'm almost ashamed that I haven't thought of it myself :D
