I found it nearly impossible to get the colours right on this when scanning or taking a photograph.
I started with a watercolour background on a piece of Rives BFK, and then inked a flowery thing with a sample of homemade walnut ink that a thoughtful woman from Idaho sent me to try. I was using my dip pen for this; it was fascinating to use walnut ink that someone had prepared themselves.
The rest of the collage is scrapbooking paper and Canson Mi-Teintes paper.
I enjoyed doing this but it was tedious to weight the piece in between layers of collage. It took me hours more because of that.
Materials I used:
Van Gogh watercolours
Speedball Dip Pen with #512 Bowl Pointed Nib
Rives BFK paper
Canson Mi-Teintes paper: burgundy, tobacco, sand
Paper Pizazz Solid Muted Colors acid-free paper
Golden Soft Gel Medium
