    This video was requested by Deb from the community – a wispy abstract butterfly made from digital acrylic pour painting and lined with messy black ink. I tried a few different versions and ultimately decided to trace a butterfly outline from an image from unsplash, to use as a template. Then I filled the “wings” […]

    For today’s tutorial we will be making a forest out of digital alcohol ink which is very abstract and looks a bit like it might belong in a Dr. Suess book! It’s a bit silly and whimsical, and a lot of fun to make. The technique is inspired (with permission) by an artist named Bea […]
