Playing with Brusho in Wild Wisteria

Playing with Brusho
HI, Happy New Year. I can't believe it's 2015. I've been painting every day but today I decided to play with the Brusho Inks I got from Amazon--Blick.  I bought the 12 pack before Christmas. I was disappointed it didn't come with directions... so I went to U Tube. and found I had to puncture the lid of each container with a pin to allow the sprinkles of ink to fall out.

 So here I did use the warm water as recommended and it does work better and just with my largest squirrel quill brush splashed on a wild wisteria.. I love wisteria so very much, none around now! ha ha.. but then I sprinkled, shook madly/wildly onto the wet paper the Ultra marine, which has various blues and purples in it. For the leaves- Emerald and the vine- Dark Brown. This was freeing. I'm going to try some more. I only put the water down where I wanted the color. I wish I had not put the green vine down the center but oh well. Close up you can see swirls of the color.. So much fun.

 Have you tried it?? What are doing this winter day?? Love to you,Diana


  1. I'm not familiar with the material. I'll have to read more to understand.
    Winter day had hand thing drained. Now I get to pamper myself (chocolate quota reached for the day), and have a good time make black bean chili. Chopping onion with my left hand should be lots of laughs.
    For art, sketching until my hand fees better.

  2. This is one of my favourite plants too and you have captured it beautifully! I have also been experimenting lately. It's fun, isn't it! Time goes so quickly doesn't it? Happy New-Year to you too!


Please comment, I enjoy them so much!
