Hi ho art friends.
A while ago, I picked up Danielle Donaldson’s “Creative Girl” book, which started my enchantment with drawing tiny, wonky houses and using a white acrylic pen on dark backgrounds.
It occurred to me that I should try using a white pen on my dark backgrounds. I queued up several arty youtube videos and my large Dylusions journal, white Posca pens, Intense pencil, and Jane Davenport’s Mermaid pens and created this page.
The page started with doodling along with Molly Hollyberry’s youtube video on Crazy Huggins, a tangle variation of Huggins.
Next. I watched one of Jane Davenport’s youtube videos and I love to art along with Jane and wondered what the Mermaid pens would look like over the white acrylic pen work.
I like the look and contrast achieved with this technique. I’ve been exploring it in my art journal, so you can expect to see more of this. I also want to incorporate this more in my future works.
Stay tuned and happy arting!
