new sketches and paintings :)

This is so cute! I'm going to make a painting like this:

I've been working with acrylic ink and water. I just throw the paint on the canvas and use my trusty spray bottle to let it drip. The dry time is quicker..especially with a hair dryer! hehe....I love how it moves on the canvas. In the past I would use water with acrylic paint, which works fine...but ink gives a grittier feel to it and a uniform consistency. I'm also experimenting with tracing paper to give my paintings more depth. I like to layer my paintings and by using layers of other things such as paper, I can strip it away to reveal past layers. Love it! I'll post a video/ photos with some new paintings soon!

Here is a quick sketch of the painting I plan to do next- don't laugh...I literally did it in 30 seconds!
