Guh. They make me sad. ;_;

Love the thorn imagery, and the way they clutch.

I love the effect on the darkness. Was that using a resist, a mask or wicking the paint out?

Masking fluid before painting the dark tendrils. Once the paint was dry it was erased, bringing out the pattern of white paper.

*nods* That's what it looked like to me, but I wanted to know if you had a diffrent technique. It's lovely.

Drawing and painting with actual paints is something I don't do very often, so in all honestly any 'technique' of mine is really just a series of trial and error. X3
Some work out, some don't. I'm pleased with this effect, though, it did come close to what I had hoped for. ^^d

once again I am force to bow before your talent then. though resists and watercolors are helva fun to play with.

I'll probably take up more traditional painting up ahead - we're moving to a bigger place, and I'll finally get to have a proper workspace (sans cats getting in the paint). So playing around with fun techniques will likely be fun. :)
