Tag Archive: Liquitex Acrylic Markers


There are a few topics that I eventually like to discuss… My recent experiments with masking fluid….Nah! Boring! More MonoPrints… Nah!! (Noooo. Not another Mono-Print!) How about drawing and painting the same tree I photographed in California over and over again? Now that could be promising.

I have been experimenting again. This time with different surfaces, (paper, canvas, boards), different grounds (nothing, Gesso, Golden Light Molding Paste), Different drawing material (pencils, charcoal, Sharpie Water based markers, Liquitex Acrylic Markers and just plain old brushes). I am attempting to find my way through all the art supplies that are available. I NEED to find my niche.

The first  is 5 x 7, canvas, with Gesso and Golden Light Molding Paste. Once the ground finally dried and I started applying paint, I was IN LOVE!! The surface was so Absorbent! Beautiful texture.

The second is 5 x 7, paper, with Colourfix Ground for Pastels. I used Golden Fluid Acrylics squeezed through a needle nose applicator. Another great way to paint without using a paint brush! and I really liked the control that I had over the acrylic.

The next 3 drawing are on Utrecht Drawing paper (a personal favorite). They all began as humble pencil drawings. The last one was enhanced with a new product (at least to me) , Sharpie water based markers. I have had a problem in the past with markers bleeding through paper, and white markers that don’t cover (thin watery paint!) Hurrah for Sharpie. They have done it again! They didn’t bleed through and the white covered the pencil marks. I’m impressed.

Hope that you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! Send me a comment, if you are so inclined. I’d love to hear from you

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes friends, we have a puppy. She is asleep, so I am grabbing a few minutes to update you on my art!
I have been working with ink pens, watercolors and of course, my new loves acrylic markers. Thought that I would share!

The first set is a Plein Air painting that I did last week. First of the season!

Next are a set of sketches that I did. The first is a pen and ink, with the ink washed with water. I found this technique on YouTube and just loved the results. I want to try it on better LARGER paper.

Next are two sketches that I wanted to share. Both are done with markers and charcoal. Just another technique that I like to play with (minimal supplies to take outside with the dog!)
