Paint with water |TIP77


I accidentally spoiled one of my sketch with water. But it was actually a happy discovery ! Let’s make it our TIP of the Day !

I was drinking a  bottle of water I just took out from the fridge. Because of the water condensation, some drop of water dropped on some of my sketches.

One sip of water and I got 7 “beautiful” stains.
But it’s ok. I actually don’t give much value to my sketches so it doesn’t affect me. When such things happened, tell yourself that you are able to draw a lot more anyway. As long as you don’t intend to show them to a client.

You can refer to the non damaged sketches on the article:

I guess that’s how I made this event a positive thing: If water can dilute my ink, why not playing with this ! It’s like watercolour !

1- Draw with a felt pen or Ink gel.

2- Use a brush with ONLY water. You are ready to paint !

That’s what I like in experimenting stuff. Being surprised when unexpected things happen.

Feel free to leave a comment, and see you guys tomorrow for the next TIP of the day !

If the sketching methods I’ve acquired aid me in my life and in my career, I believe that they can also help you to learn, and help you with your projects. Whether Design is a job or a hobby it doesn’t matter, so long as you do what is important to you.
