Ok, not really but I can't help but think about "Finding Nemo" and that line when I use inks. I loved yesterday's inky drawing/painting so much I decided I had to give it another go today. I'll admit that I don't have a ton of inks on hand so there's not much variation in my color choices, but then again, I love these colors so who cares if I don't have many. I did do a little color mixing but I think those colors ended up in the first layer so you can't really see them anymore :(. Anyway, despite my inner critic chiming in and making me question my choices in these, I am liking this process of play and experimentation. I am also liking the results. This one, though, isn't done yet. There are a few places that are just a little too dark that I want to brighten up to create a bit more contrast. Stay tuned for the final piece tomorrow!
I also got a fun delivery today. My mom sent me some money to buy some art supplies and I decided to get more colored pencils...since I'm loving this medium right now. So, here are all 5 sets of Spectrum Noir's Blendable Colored Pencils. I've rearranged them by number rather than how they come in the set. I think I'll do a review of them in the near future after I've played with them a bit. I'm going to work on a color chart tonight to be able to see how they look on paper. I'll actually have two color charts for these. One chart will have each pencil in order 1-120 but the other chart will organize the colors as they came in each tin. I'll post pics of those when done, probably tomorrow.
See you tomorrow!
