march

Here's the collage of daily journals for March. I experimented with Tsukineko inks and chose to paint objects in order to learn to control my materials. My first attempts were heavy handed to say the least...I learned to lighten up, dab my paint brush in a rag before putting it fabric and in the last few days I learned that a natural bristle brush holds a LOT more ink in it then a synthetic brush. I'm working out the details of how I am putting these little pieces of fabric together and will share that soon. Meanwhile I am trying to decide on my technique for April... ....decisions decisions....

What a wonderful progression!! It does indeed demosntrate the old addage of Practice Makes Perfect!!! We all need to remember this ,I think, and slow down and really learn to use our materials rather than rushing thru and expecting everything to come out right the first time!!!! Thanks for sharing this wonderful lesson with Us Natalya!!! Have a wonderful weekend!!

I love the idea of concentrating on a particular practice for a month. I bought some samples of the T. inks recently and you have inspired me to get them out and try them.
Which brush did you prefer - the natural or synthetic? Or was it just that they are different?
