Wolves howling
My second painting using the masking fluid technique. Blog post is here… where I show work in progress shots and talk about the process.
Deer on hill
This was my first attempt at using masking fluid to mask out areas I didn't want coloured, and then painting over with a wet-on-wet technique using my Royal Talens Van Gogh watercolours. Peeling off the masking fluid was so satisfying! I have a blog post about it here >>… where you can see work in progress shots.
After a bit of a hiatus, I'm back into the swing of creating art. But I'm not so much into uploading it everywhere. So what comes here will be in fits and starts and not necessarily all of it. If you want to see everything pretty much as it's done, follow me on instagram or facebook. I've been messing with a lot more traditional media rather than digital art, though no doubt I'll swing back to digital art at some point, especially as I've just upgraded to ArtRage 5. Woot! And of course I'll have to dust off my Wacom Cintiq and break out one of my favourite drawing programs, Mischief, too at some point.
