I am still on my mini painting binge, the palette is a little different this time, inspired by summer woodland. A mix of watercolour, acrylic and ink, 2.5 x 3.5 inches. I have mounted them in 6 x 8 inch mounts to give them more impact.
I have been playing about with my acrylic paints, inks and Neocolors. I used heavy weight water colour paper as a base.
The ink is from Sakura’s Pigma pens, which are pigment based and fade proof. I especially love the brush tip version.
The Neocolor crayons are water soluble, so will dissolve with water to create a watercolour effect. I used to be sceptical about their usefulness, until I got some to try. Now I wouldn’t be without them. They are great to take sketching too.
I have been playing around with one of my drawings today. I had scanned it on to the computer and decided to add a few digital effects. It was fun to play around. It needs more work but the technique has some potential I think.
