I am on a role today. It must be the sunshine we have today.
I was watching a video by The Frugal Crafter that showed her doing a demonstration on using the Inktense Chalks. I really wanted to try it as although I do not own that brand, I do have the stick chalks.
What I learned was that chalks are not very forgiving… Once you smudge, it is almost impossible to cover or correct. I also learned that you can use too much water and the paper pills… I did try to finish it but was not happy with it as all I could see was my mistakes… but I liked the scene…
I will have to try and find some tips on using chalks to paint with as the colors are so nice and vibrant etc.
I have used chalks for background etc but not in an actual scene.
Soooooooo I thought why not try it in my trusted acrylics. This worked so much better
I will show both- Ist the Sunset with Chalks. The shadows are all wrong and muddy etc etc.
Now the one with using acrylics… I feel I have way more control over what I do
