Green Koi

Acrylic ink creates a very smooth surface - ideal for going over with coloured pencils, as I did here. Acrylic ink also can be used in a wet-in-wet-technique, which I did with the water in this painting. I used one clean brush only for wetting the paper, and a second one for applying the paint. As acrylic ink dries up very fast on the paper, you have to be quick if you want to prevent sharp edges, and you have to be careful with your brush strokes, but then you can achieve an effect similar to ones you can achieve with watercolours.
