There’s a few supplies and colors I use in every painting.
One of my new favorites is liquid watercolor (especially in fluorescent red and pink).
Lately I’ve been experimenting with the liquid watercolor in my backgrounds, layering it with acrylic inks and titanium white acrylic paint to see what happens.
Once the colors dry, the layers remind me of stained glass.
I love the look so much, that I’ve started playing with these new layers in my characters too.
Now I’ll add drips and splashes of the liquid watercolor, acrylic inks and lots of fingerprints to define the character’s hair and body. Then, I layer my other favorite supplies:
* Titanium White acrylic paint
* Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold acrylic paint
* Cobalt Teal acrylic paint
* Pyrrole Red acrylic paint
* Acrylic spray paint (by Liquitex)
* Yellow Orange Azo acrylic ink (by Liquitex)
* Titanium White, Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna oil paintsticks
* Fluorescent pink and white paint pens (by Sharpie)
* Water-based black pencil (a Stabilo Marks All Coloring Pencil)
Whenever I play and experiment with art supplies, it helps me feel calm and connected. Then I can follow my heart and paint with freedom, which inevitably leads me to new discoveries so I can keep strengthening and developing my style.
In this video preview you’ll hear how I talk you through my mistakes and frustrations in my own paintings to make it easier for you to overcome your own creative hurdles and roadblocks, no matter what you’re painting.
