|Sea Air, A bit of Weather and Bracing! 8x15cm drypoint with mixed media ©2022LisaLeQuelenec|
I treated myself to some new paint last week... Gansai Tambi watercolours - Starry colours made by Kuretake. Oooohhhh they are lovely, I particularly like the paler colours which are shimmery but not opaque. I have used pearlescent inks before but have been disappointed with the outcome. These watercolours are much better for the effect that I was after.
Using test prints from the previous drypoint I have added shimmer in certain areas whilst leaving others with just the original ink. I have photographed them above straight on and to angle so you can see how they catch the light. I think it would be easy to overwork a piece with the shimmer and I may need to rein in my enthusiasm but I can definitely see possibilities.... What do you think?
These and prints from the edition are available in my Folksy store.
