    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.

    Thank you Phillip for your comments, much appreciated.
    I also checked out Decorative maps.com and really like the info there.
    Where would we be without a map? Lost probably.

    Impressive, and to use such an oft done map and make it stand out. The acrylic wash and color choices are superb.
