Prepping to paint the next stage of the Louise de Masi’s chrysanthemum. For adding detail, I’m testing out my #2, #4 in the ink brushes, plus the #5, vg6. Also trying which technique works best… wet on wet or wet on dry. For these small spaces, I could go with the wet on dry for the ink brushes because I don’t like the ragged edges that are happening with the w/w. But the vg6 brush seems to work well for both.
I wonder if I’m just not waiting long enough for the water to soak in or if it’s because I’m using cheap paper. Actually, I tried massaging to water into the paper in the largest purple shape here and that seeemed to work pretty well.
