New mixed media paintings

Stripes 2

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.

 

More playing with Dr PH Martin’s Bombay Indian Ink

Further to my previous post, here is another painting using the fabulous Dr PH Martin’s Bombay Indian Inks.

This time I also used some Neocolor II crayons, which are professional quality, water soluble wax crayons. When the ink is used alongside them they partially dissolve and create some lovely effects.

I am loving the translucent qualities of these inks and will continue playing with them to see what they can do, on their own and in combination with other media.
