Days 1 and 2

So my first two paintings for 30 paintings in 30 days.

Both using Inktense pencils playing with how they work, very much sketches to try techniques rather than trying to a finished picture.   I will probably use this to try out all those things I have any never use  I suspect ! Very interested that these specifically mention using as silk paints as well as on paper.

Day 1 -
Mostly done by scribbling on a different piece of paper and  then used like paint.

Day 2 - More along the lines of colour and then wash.

I have decided to restart this blog as we go into 2016 as somewhere to post things I do which aren't directly to do with costumes, most of those will stay on facebook.

I have decided to have a go at 30 paintings in 30 days which my much more talent painter friend Kasia is doing. I am hoping to use to learn watercolours but also to try out some painting and mark making techniques I may be able to use in my costume or jewellery work as well. If nothing else there as some silk painting techniques I want to try out.
