Overload, little painting

 Overload. Acrylic, colourpencil and ink on Arches hotpress watercolour paper.
12,70 x 17,78cm/ 5" x 7", 2013.

I wasn't sure about the background, if I would make something in the front or light background details, but I think this is the best option.
I've drawn the cup with permanent marker and painted on top of it with Golden fluid acrylics and that worked surprisingly well, because it gave it a better sphere than the marker only. Lately I've been painting on top of ballpoint ink as well and I love the effect.
 If I would start over I think I would remove the cup because it didn't turn out the way I wanted it. But sometimes I just have to move on to the next piece, everything is a learning process.

    1. Hi Gexton. Thank you!
      I haven't update a few paintings because I'm often times working on several projects/paintings at the same time, changing a lot, but stuff is coming up soon!

  2. This is gorgeous. Such an elegant painting. I actually like the tea cup. It lends to the flamingo's fragility.
