Portrait of a Girl in Acrylic Inks

 

Hello Friends!

Yesterday I decided to use some great discount coupons to buy a few colors of Liquitex Acrylic Inks. I got a really great deal on on a set of primary colors and then also bought some Transparent Raw Sienna and Transparent Burnt Sienna, because I have plans to use them in other portraits. This was the medium used by Maria Pace Wynters in Week #8 of Let’sFaceIt2020. She uses hers on wood substrates, but I don’t have any of those. So I plan to use them on canvas and paper for now.

The “primary” blue in this set is really a Cerulean Blue Hue which is much lighter than an actual primary blue, but I like it! It is one of my favorite blue hues.

These inks come in 1 oz. bottles with droppers. So I just put some in my metal tray a drop at a time, (which goes a long way) and used small paint brushes on an 8″x 8″ canvas I had on hand.

I used a photo that Ivy Newport provided for this mini lesson on her website. She will be one of the instructors in my Let’sfaceit2020 class at some point, too. I love her way of teaching and her sweet spirit. You can find her classes at https://ivynewport.com/ Personally, I am doing her Studioworks classes; she provides a different theme and writes about a different artist each month. She also offers other courses she teaches as well as courses taught by other artists. You can find these on her website.

Ivy is an open, honest and very sweet person. I highly recommend her as an art instructor! This was a fun portrait to do! I have a lot to learn about these acrylic inks, but as you know, I love learning new things!

I hope everyone has had a nice week!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 😀

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
