Totally Tropical

I have been experimenting with inks and paint effects in the studio, it is so nice to get back to painting and mark making.
 I love my computer and AVA Software but always struggle with brush types. A bit of free hand painting, scanning and recolouring on the computer and this is one of the designs I came up with. It's quite nice to hear washing of brushes in jars of water instead of the hum of my computer, ooohh and have paint up my arms again!


  1. You're right, you can only get these effects with paint. I've been working on birds for Jane. I use AI for the brush effects but you can still see it's CAD. These are very pretty!!

  2. Thanks Christine, loving painting but having to paint in grey scale, so may have a go at making some new brushes in AVA.
