My first painting 100% done with ecoline. It was fun to try something what is quite similar to watercolours yet so different~ I learned that Ecoline reacts with water much more than watercolour and it is easy to create some interesting patterns but at the same time to mess everything up xD What I like a lot that the colour is vibrant.
I’ve painted my inquisitor Igni for this practice :) I hope you’ll like this painting as much as I do :)
