For a long time now I’ve been struggling with arm pain while drawing on paper, and eyestrain while painting digitally. I’ve also had trouble getting the results I want, so with all that in mind I thought I’d try the unthinkable (except it’s not unthinkable because I clearly thought it. Anyway…) and pulled out a tube of black watercolour and a couple of old brushes that had been lying around in a drawer for years. Here are the results! Nothing too fancy, just a test to see how my arm handled it (it was much better than when drawing) and to see what sort of control I could get (good enough to play with it further).
Not great art, but a useful experiment! I think I’d be a much better artist if I experimented more, just trying things out and pushing boundaries to see what different tools and methods do.
