🎨 Testing new acrylic markers

in art •  6 days ago

Trying some new pigmented ink markers for the lights. It's much faster to draw these details than to paint them.

Honestly i couldn't guess about markers in this work , your'e the best! :)

·

Here I just use the markers for the white openings in the towers. The benefit of these is their opacity, especially of the white one.

·
·

Great! I think i can use it also ,for white dots on black surface , i used to work with white acrylic , but rarely .

Nice work! Also your Photos are really beautiful!!!:-)

·

Thanks Caroline!

Really cool artwork ;D
I was there though.. The sky trees in Singapore!

·

Thanks! Yes, the supertrees in Singapore are amazing!

good stuff! I mean these markers can be great. It's like when i found out there is a pen with a acrylic in it, for tiny paintings!
:-)

·

Yes, they are very useful!

damn! and i thought you just painted NOTHING on the white parts :-)

·

I thought the same ! ..

·

It's much easier this way!

Great workmanship. I w as just checking out your website. My only criticism is the websites itself looks dated. You may want to consider how your work is being presented on the site.

·

Thanks! I used to have 500-600 visitors a day in my website before facebook became big. Today most of my audience is following me on social media so I don't care much about the website anymore.

I think the website looks and works fine. There are those that build flashy sites that overpower the artwork. I tried all kinds of templates myself, and whatever I tried, I always went back to the simple one I have.

Adding those details must be a task and a half- isn't it nice when we find tools that make it go faster and easier!

·

Yes, good tools make things much easier so you can concentrate more on the creative aspects of your work.

Work smarter not harder, right? This looks like a great solution to make something easier, and the white really pops. These progress posts are interesting, I like seeing some behind the scenes tricks of the trade.
Oh yeah, and every time I see one of your pieces I just can't get over how much I like the color palates you use; it just works so well.

·

Thank you!

That looks amazing!

·

Thanks!

I've been looking for that kind - I can see the brand in the close-up, but where do you get them from? Boesner? I tried all kinds (that didn't work).

·

Yes, Boesner. Just bought black, grey and white. I don't thing the lightfastness of the other colors is very reliable.

·

OK thanks - I mainly am looking for white. Don't need colors. There are also fillable brush-pens which you can fill with acrylic ink (I use Golden Liquid), but they are a pain in the ass to load up.
