Food colouring 2

Last blog post with holiday drawings, as promised.

I think the pictures speak for themselves. I became quite fond of food colouring over my holiday.

The only drawback is that I don’t want to use them outdoors: They are liquid, the bottles are small and fiddly, so … well, I don’t feel brave enough to try.

Nevertheless, I loved using them indoors. These are my last few drawings:

I made a smudge when I painted over an area still damp. I could have retouched it, but sometimes mistakes look better left untouched.

In this drawing I made another mistake: I applied the grey to the curtains thinking the paper was dry. I only realised afterwards that it wasn’t fully dry, as it left dark patches in the shadow areas.

I don’t feel it spoils the picture too much but I’m glad I learned something for next time

Some of these drawings are new versions of previous one like this one in crayons  and this one in felt tip pen

In a way, they are a series: a series of sketches, doodles, experiments in different media leading to a final piece. Like the ones above.

Thanks for reading this and keeping me company in this journey. I hope you enjoyed it too.

I plan to keep posting, perhaps about other things (experiments I did, books I read) that also contributed to the inspiration or execution of these drawings.

See you next time.
