While watching tv, I got out my watercolour pad, a Uniball micro pen and some water and started seeing what effects I could get.
This was the first
This was the second. Getting more complex
I loved the effect I could get just using the one pen. The ink dried very quickly and was waterproof once dry, but while it was wet it gave a lovely water colour effect.
On some of the lines I wet it and went back in with the pen to achieve some softer edge and spread the dissolve ink to give me the wash. The blots were created with cling film (food wrap) scrunched up and dipped in diluted chinese ink. The chinese ink is so strong, and very black and I would have liked the black areas to be less intense. A final splattering of ink finished it off.
Definitely an idea I can take forward.
Creativity is a funny thing - it is definitely enhanced by 'doing'.
