Watercolor and Ink for DSDF – Man in Blue

Filed under: dsdf, figure painting, watercolor and ink, watercolor painting — laurenmaurerartworks @ 3:57 pm

Here’s the latest for Karin Jurick’s DSDF challenge…. I chose to use watercolor and ink for this one. A few months ago one of the challenges was to paint a sculpture and I wished after it was posted that I had used ink. I was torn in this one on whether or not use finish it with ink, so in the end I remembered that challenge and went for it. Now, moving onto poppies, ducks and maybe a lobster…

5×7 watercolor and ink on cold press

  8. Hi Lauren, Love this one. Really like the pen and ink. I would be glad to discuss casein. It is very flexible as you can use it like watercolors or you can use it thickly like acrylic. Buy a few Shiva casein colors and I will bet you will enjoy.Anne Marie
