Something Whimsical This Way Comes

In my seemingly never-ending challenge to get back in my painting groove, I decided to do a little experimenting. I was inspired by a demo I saw on Pinterest awhile back which involved watercolor, acrylic paint, acrylic inks and paint pens.

I was intrigued by the process, because it's all out of your imagination. I've always felt I needed to look at an object in order to paint it. This was more akin to finding your objects and creating negative space. There was something very freeing about just trying to figure out where to go next with the painting.

For my first experiment in this process I am fairly pleased. More importantly, I can't wait to get to the next try at it.
