I Don’t Like Brushes

27 Oct

Water Colour. The clues in the name. Water. Colour. Water first, then the colour. I’ve been having a few little experiments with watercolours lately. It pays to use excellent quality paints as the colours are so vibrant. I soaked the paper with a sponge first then dappled little spots of watercolour onto the surface with my finger, then ended up with a few scribbles of Aquarelle pencils. I’ve never liked paintbrushes, which might be why I’m a printmaker. It’s nice to play around with materials with for no other reason than having a play.

    Watercolour pencils are pretty cool too.

      I tried a little scribble on the edges there but I must try harder. I rarely use pencils of any sort and I should get to grips with them.

        I have some watercolor pencils I was going to use in one of printmaking workshops.
        Exposing my monotype class to materials. Forgot I had them! Might be a good time for me to experiment.
