The last couple of days, I’ve been working on my sketchbook. I’ve been trying out new techniques and new mediums. After reading about making your own stamps. I decided to try it out myself.
For this page, I used acrylic paint in pastel colours and paper napkins for some texture.
Watered down acrylic paint
This Collage was inspired by a haiku written by Natsume Soseki:
Over the wintry
forest, winds howl in rage
with no leaves to blow.
I don’t really like colouring in my drawings because I feels so definite and I won’t be able to change the drawing. But looking at the black and white sketch and the finished sketch, I like the effect of the colours.
I’ve been experimenting with Derwent Aquatones. I love the effects you get when you wet the drawing. I used Aquatones and Inktense on the page below.
