I tried staining the hot press paper with acrylic inks before watercoloring this time, and I really liked it. Also Ultramarine is turning out to be super useful! I avoided it for so long, afraid of the super bluey-ness. I was a fool.
Back to work now, for a really, really long time. I may be able to sneak back with some sketches here and there, fingers crossed!
There is no end to my love for this. You don’t get to hear Flo sing, but you can really hear the Machine coming into it’s own here. It’s such a beautiful and happy melody that builds and builds. The perfect opening for the brilliant song that usually follows.
