goofing off

I'm currently drawing pictures of aliens with my dip pen because I can.  I painted watercolor over regular gesso and if you go back to fix any spots that don't have any color you get interesting layered results. Interesting as in your mistakes are really obvious.  So I went back in with my pen and drew the pictures I saw emerging from the page.  I took a class with the lovely Carla Sonheim a few years ago and she has a bunch of great techniques where you draw what you see in pen or paint splotches.
