So nice, I was thinking it was water color but I see Acrylic wash. I haven't ever used that. Is it difficult?

You really must keep an eye out for the next time we do a monthly Challenge that entails making a map in traditional means by hand. Meaning no digital effects or anything.

Thank you Jaxilon, I will look out for a challenge like that, sounds like fun!

I'm quite impressed with the quality and professionalism of the digital work here, and will look further into that medium myself.
Using Acrylic in a diluted form acts much like watercolor but drys more permanent.
