Get Artsy Last Two Weeks

Sadly my Big Picture Class Get Artsy has come to an end   The last two weeks focused on watercolours and India inks.

The watercolour layout used a sheet of watercolour paper which was sprayed with water, I used watercolour cakes, tubes and gelatos blended together, using a straw to blow the paint, (need a lot of puff for that!), some drippage from the top of the page and some splatters from the paint brush, finished off with some stamps for extra texture. I like the effects on the finished page, and don't be afraid of white space!

The last page used India inks, again on watercolour paper which I cut into squares and rectangles.  Some of the squares were sprayed with water so they were really wet, I then dropped India inks onto the paper and watched them spread.  Other papers were covered with molding paste then coloured with ink.  You could also use the Pitt Big Brush Pens over the paste and blend with your fingers.

On the plus side, I have found a new class, drawing whimsical girls faces, photo's to follow once I have watched the videos and practiced!


  1. Did you use a straw or just blow?!!! I love them both but the red arrow background is my fave! xx

    1. Put down blobs of paint and then blow with a straw in the direction you want it to go, I always run out of puff though! x
