Drawn with a dark sepia inkpen, and then added watercolour washes.
Mostly my art is inspired by scenes from home – my favourite place to be. I’m not often directly looking at the subject matter. However: bowls, teapots, fruit, a vase of flowers, pot-plants, the garden, gumtrees, paddocks, bushland, birds…are daily in view – providing many delightful shapes and colours; and different plays of light throughout the day. Thankful!†
I love to experiment with different paper surfaces; both for drawing and painting – and for inkjet printing. Roughly textured watercolour paper, can add quite an interesting element to my watercolours – as in my watercolour above.
It’s surprising how well many non-inkjet papers make for an effective print. My printer uses pigment ink and therefore, if I want to do further work on a print with watercolour or gouache… the ink doesn’t run. The print below is on a “cold press” type of watercolour paper. This link here has some info on different types of watercolour paper.
I like the graphic style of the above drawing. There are brushes in the Procreate app that really lend themselves to creating this type of look.
I particular like a brush called “Nikko Rull”. It can give my line-work a sort of Lino block print effect – as in the drawing below. I may have shared this drawing in a post a fair while back. Think I’ll use this brush again soon.
Thank you for visiting; hope you have a great day!
