Adventures in Acrylic Wash Painting

Taisa is currently working on building a body of work in a new medium (well, new to her)…pen and ink colored with acrylic wash in a more stately style.  You see, many artists are using this method to create more pop or surrealist style.  Taisa is going for more of a Beatrice Potter, Arthur Rackham effect.  The really great thing about this is that it allows her to take advantage of her beloved pen and ink medium; a carryover from our anime days.  At this time we are complying a bunch of video footage of Taisa getting accustomed working on the style.  She has been hitting some real gems lately.

The tools that she’s found useful for working in this medium are very soft brushes and working in a monochromatic palette for the time being.  I am hesitant to advocate particular brands but Micron pens have been the most successful with working this way as they don’t bleed when the water-based acrylic color is added.

 

These are just a few of the delightful drawings Taisa has produced in this style recently.  There will be prints of these drawings available in our Etsy Shop soon.  We just recorded a video of her working in this style and there will be updates everywhere when those things come to pass.

Thanks again for liking, commenting and sharing our content, have a great day!
