Watercolours and white ink.

I realised I never uploaded this here? Gadzooks!
In any case, I really like this. Trying to do negative painting is so difficult, because I can never visuallise the finished product and therefore can't predict if it's going to work or not, haha.

If I ever figure out negative painting, I'll let you know :'D

The negative painting technique is a difficult one, but it's also a beautiful one.

I'm still trying to learn it too...but if it helps...:painter: 
There are some useful video tutorials on YouTube:

Oooh, I've seen that first video! I love it~
Thank you for the links, they were very helpful!

I think I'm finding it difficult because I need to work quickly for an even wash, and I can't take time to do it carefully. I think for the next time, I'm going to use a watercolour pencil to lightly sketch my design so that it fades with the wash and doesn't leave pencil lines... Good luck to the both of us, haha!

You really should draw something beforehand...I need to do it too (just a regular pencil which I apply very light).

I get lost sometimes too, with this technique. With making the marks with the pencil it's much more easier...and more successful :giggle: otherwise I would only get a mess =D

I do it step by step...first I draw...paint...wait for it to dry...then draw again and paint...and repeat as much as I need it.

Happy painting :hug:
