  • Trying Out My New Pens

    For Christmas I got these Tombow Dual Brushpens 18 Colour Set (Primary) and have been itching to try them out ever since. Today I finally had enough time to play!

    A Touch of Attitude

    I had already created the background using watercolour paint, so I drew the figure using pencil, outlined it using a uni pin fine liner, then coloured it using the Tombow pens.

    I love how easy they are to blend and am very pleased with the final result. I can see I shall be ordering some more colours very soon!

    Playing with Stencils!

    Yesterday, Christmas came early! I got these Texture Stencils from “artistcellar” in the post! So much fun!

    Playing with Stencils

    I started out by adding colour washes with Inktense pencils to some watercolour paper to create an under layer to the stencils. I used the Inktense pencils because once they’ve been activated they become permanent. When the colour wash layers were dry I got out the acrylic paint and started playing with the stencils! It was very messy – but the stencils are great!

    I have no idea at the moment what I’ll use these backgrounds for, they’ll probably get obscured by additional layers of something else, but for now I’m just enjoying them as they are!
