In autumn 2010 I bought some copic ciao markers. I did some pieces with them during the rest of the year, but then I moved over to doing art with photoshop and somehow forgot them. Yesterday I suddenly felt like having a go with them again, and did this fish.
While I was painting away I had a strange feeling: I felt like working with my copics on a new level. I have been doing coloured pencil pieces and watercolour pencil pieces; I have been working with pastels (oilies and dusties), and I learnt a lot. I had done the fish with coloured pencils and oil pastels, and now I did it with copic ciaos, and each time it was a different fish.
I also know now that I have a range of mediums which I like, and I am happy that I haven’t to decide for one. I’ve got them all neatly stacked away (well, almost), but they are easy to get and use. What a bliss!
