Hi everyone :)
Welcome to the first video of my new youtube channel. I thought I'd kick off with something simple and do a swatch video as I've watched a lot of other artists do them and I've never in my life done a swatch sheet before. I usually just pick out the colours based on the label tone and alter it through mixing if I need to tweak it. I've been using water based inks for a good couple of years now, after trying alcohol markers and finding that, while I liked them, the work involved in avoiding hard edges and streaks felt a lot to keep on top of and I felt stressed when colouring larger areas. I find water based inks used with a brush a little easier to control and I can cover a large area quickly with a wash like you would with watercolour paints. The way they mix when two colours are next to each other is also a lovely thing to experiment with and see what kind of effects you can create.
If you've never used inks before, these work a little differently to watercolour paint, which is something my brain wouldn't accept for a long time. It just seemed to me that they should be pretty similar since you can do washes and the pigment spreads in water, but actually they behave quite differently as they are waterproof once dry and dry very quickly, meaning you can layer them up without the lower layers being moved around and can typically work more quickly than with watercolour paint, which would have a much longer drying time. A lot of the same principles apply to both though in terms of high gsm paper being a good idea to reduce buckling and the way you can water the inks down to get different shades without mixing the ink with other colours (e.g creating different saturations of colour without using white).
The next video I put up with likely be a practice video of some orchid studies done with some of the colours I pipetted out for this swatch video as I needed to try and use some of them up before they dried.
