How to use Aquafine Ink with Alice Coles
Meet artist Alice Coles from Colorado and follow the creation of "Electric Pool" created in Aquafine Ink.
This piece was inspired by a dreamlike, hazy summer day with hot clouds, cold pool water, and bright vivid colours. Alice wanted to create juxtaposition both in the visual imagery between the figure’s expression and the colours and textures around her but also in the visual techniques she used. This artwork took weeks of work on and off, which made Aquafine Ink perfect since they re-wet after drying with no problem.⠀
Enjoy her step-by-step process in the video and gain some tips and tricks from Alice.
