Star Mandala

Star Mandala. PITT Artist Brush pens and Gouache on Acrylic paper. November 2014

I was curious about two things: How would PITT Artist Brush pens and acrylic paper go together and how would gouache paint and indian ink go together? So I fetched my pad of acrylic paper which I’d bought two years ago, my PITT pens and my bottle of golden yellow gouache paint made by Lascaux which I bought this summer.

I think that those two questions can be answered with one sentence: they go together quite well. Of course you have to wait till the ink has dried and is not watersoluble anymore. The golden yellow is layered over red ink–and I had to do more than one layer in order to make it opaque. The yellow wheel in the middle has been layered on dark blue/red colour.

I must admit that at the moment I am hooked on those PITT pen brushes; I had to go to an artstore and buy three new colours, and I am looking forward to paint with them!
