This week I decided to do another picture using the rubber cement technique.
I sketched the orchids and then went over the lines with rubber cement, being careful
to seal each section so the paint couldn't run out.
I painted the orchids with a watercolor and acrylic ink combination.
Because the two stems at the bottom bothered me, I decided to use green for background at the base.
My initial watercolor green was too dull and had no texture.
Back to the acrylic ink.
I love the vivid results I get using the ink like watercolor.
I added a bit of orange to the orchids.
When you are happy with your results, you erase the rubber cement off with an
eraser made for just that. It takes up the pencil lines as well.
What are your thoughts?
