Dispersed Ink Fairy

Day 295 – Dispersed Ink Fairy

This is a bit experimental!

I drew today’s fairy in pencil on a piece of paper before using some felt tip pens on a plastic surface; spraying the ink with water and rubbing the wet inked plastic surface onto the pencil drawing. I drew over the pencil drawing in fineliner.

I quite like the effect of the ink dispersed on the page.

Day of the Dead Fairy

Day 267 – Day of the Dead Fairy

To recognise the celebration of the lives of passed loved ones, I have painted a Day of the Dead fairy. I drew a basic outline before using watercolour paints to add colour.

Despite some of the paints running/bleeding into one another, I like the effect. Once the paints had dried I used a black fineliner to add the detail.
