After using the gouache, I tried out some black ink with a smaller, rounded watercolor brush to see how much control I had and if I liked it. I love the ease with which I manipulate the watercolor brush. I made a whole page filled with Valentine sentiments and I love almost everything on that page. So, I think this means that I should practice more with the sumi brush so that I can get comfortable with it. I feel like I have a good back up if ever I never reach the level I’m going for with the sumi brush. Although the ink was easier to work wih, I love the texture of the gouache once it’s dry. It looks so bold.
I think that, once I get comfortable with Photoshop, it’ll be so much fun to add these words to my Project Life and other projects (I’m thinking wrapping paper!)
