Arting With Jen – Day 12, 13, 14 and 15

We’re still hard at it, every day!

I decided to outline the turtle image with Black Acrylic Paint, as I’ve done with some of my bigger acrylic paintings.  This technique doesn’t work on these small pieces, I quickly found out.  This turtle is on 4″x4″ paper, and the lines are too thick and cludgey.  I’ll still try painting it with watercolors, but I don’t expect anything good to come out of it.

Isn’t it amazing how a few sloppy strokes of paint can add life to a drawing?  I just love how these rabbits turned out.  They’re on little 4″x4″ pieces of scrap 400 lb watercolor paper.

The face-on format of this fish is so good!

Jen’s pencil work just impresses the heck out of me!

Jen did a crashing wave on the 10″x 3.5″ 400 lb watercolor.  This is a really difficult thing to paint.  First she used frisket to save the whites

Then she painted it all in.  So gorgeous!

      Frisket is a liquid that you use to mask out areas, for example, saving the white of the page. You apply it, let it dry, paint all over and around it, let it dry, and then remove the frisket. Voila – No paint in the frisketed area!
