Technically I’ve done over 30 paintings already for World Watercolor Month, which is good, because I have so much work to do in the next week I’d get behind. None are masterpieces, but they were good experiments, which I think is a good goal for a challenge such as this.
Today I will show two more.
I continue my experiments with non-waterproof inks, mixing with watercolors and then painting with them all by themselves.
In the first image I under-painted with a contrasting watercolor, then overlaid the inks after the watercolor was dry. The inks didn’t like that much, and
my lovely wet Jinhao wanted to stop working. I won’t do that again unless it is a dip pen.
My pen was much happier when I let it lay down directly on paper, then used a wet brush to move the color around, and added a touch of Opera Pink in the mix.
