“Nausicaä” – 8×10″ ink and watercolor on aquabord watercolor cradled wood panel.
I’m so proud of my most recent little painting! I’m trying something a bit different here. The last time I visited the art supply store, I picked up a set of Winsor & Newton inks, and after lightly penciling in the drawing I used the nut brown ink to trace over the linework.
I used liquid resist (the light blue blobs) to protect the areas I wanted to keep white.
Here is after the first few coats of paint, not quite dark or rich enough. I used both the inks, and my watercolor paints.
And here is the finished piece!
This painting is for this group art show, set to coincide with the Penny Arcade Expo this weekend. All of the work is inspired by nostalgic animation from the 80’s and 90’s. Opening Friday night! Hope to see you there. 🙂
