Two Fish

Another frisket experiment which looks like a children’s book illustration (or to be honest, a drawing done by a child). I learned that if you dip the brush in soap you can use the frisket without messing up the brush. I’ve always painted leaving the white glint but frisket makes leaving white much easier. So I will continue to experiment with this interesting tool.

    It does not look like a drawing by a child or, if it does, the child is extremely talented at an early age! I adore your fish!

    I think this is really cool looking! And it could definitely be a children’s book illustration – reminds me of Leo Lionni or Eric Carle.

    Thanks FND and Scribble Fiend. On the way to work I was thinking I could do a bunch of animals and maybe self-publish a little childrens’ book to give away.

    Frisket is a great tool! I use it for tiny white saves when I don’t mind the hard edge it leaves. Usually I work with the painting, again, after removing the frisket to tone down the edges. I don’t mind child-like paintings at all. Some of them have more creativity behind them.
