So today I grabbed a bottle of alcohol ink that I had (in a color that I almost NEVER use anyway) and I emptied it out. Then, I put black acrylic paint inside. And that was my "brush"!
The difference was amazing!
Look at a flower done with a regular brush:
Now with my new tool:
There are blobs of paint everywhere, the petals are different from one another, the thickness of the lines is uneven (meaning: awesome!) and there are parts that don't have any paint at all - one of those "happy accidents" that make the flower look more natural. I love it!
Have you ever come up with a cool technique that made you happy? Share!
