I’ve been experimenting with watercolours and fine liners lately.
With the lockdowns and fading light, photography has become more and more difficult. I love being creative and wanted something I can do in my house, on my own, whenever I have a spare moment.
I’ve been exploring these two media, both very new to me. There is so much variety in the art store – it’s difficult to know where to start!
So I started by drawing and painting the same thing, over again, using different pens, brushes and paint mixtures, to see what I liked.
Once happy with a technique, I then reproduced it on watercolour paper (more expensive than the cartridge paper I was using, so not for experimenting!)
I used a size 4 brush for this. It has a lovely fine point so I can use it for some finer details as well
I first created the dandelion in Procreate on my iPad. I then wanted to see what it would look like painted.
That’s what I’ve been up to lately, and some drawing.
Have you learnt any new creatives skills lately?
