This past week or so I've been painting on paper and enjoying using some lovely iridescent inks. The ones I use are by Daler Rowney from their FW Pearlescent range. You can use them straight from the jar and they'll sit quite happily on even the most darkest of backgrounds. They can also be watered down to create a lovely glaze like I've done on the figure in this painting.
What better subject to use my sparkly inks than on a magical mermaid! I made a mini video (of only a few seconds long!) to show how she changes ...
In Woolly news.....
Do you remember the cardigan I was making? Well it's finished and it fits very nicely!
After using a rainbow of colours in the cardigan, I'm now making a crocheted blanket using a limited palette of mauves and greens. I love this combination of colours together. Even though it's acrylic, the yarn's lovely and soft. It's Special by Stylecraft and comes in such glorious colours. I'd rather like to have them all!
And I suspect one day I will. ;-)
