Experiment #2

An abstract that started out as a map of the United States and went crazy. I watched some YouTube videos about using Frisket which were interesting but technical (I’m not very technical art wise). I don’t sketch watercolor paintings but that’s apparently what you do to use the mask for highlights. Still I like the bright whites you get when you protect them. One video suggested using a ruling pen which I hope never to use again (remember, Kerfe? You used those a lot for your stripes?).

    Oh those ruling pens were awful. You are right, never again.
    But why would you want to use a ruling pen to do art anyway? Your experiment is wonderful, fresh and lively. Keep going!

    Actually, this looks EXACTLY like my conception of America. 😉 I agree with Kerfe that these experiments are full of life: rock on!

    The guy on YouTube said to use a ruling pen to get really straight lines for a technical piece, for instance. But since I’m never going to do a technical piece, it’s a moot point. So thanks, everyone, for the encouragement!
