Playing with Markers

Today is day 25 of AEDM.
I was having a play with some alcohol based markers I had been given and this is what I came up with.

The background is water based inks and the drawing is alcohol markers with a bit of metallic paint thrown in.
I really enjoyed using these and I am sure I will use them more when I get the hang of it.  I especially love the blender marker that you can use to mix he colours together.

Happy creating


  1. I've never heard of these markers, but the results you got were stunning. I bet these become an added tool in your art arsenal.

  2. Such a lovely image of the butterfly emerging from the cocoon. The markers look like they would be interesting to work with given the beautiful images and blends of colors you were able to achieve with this drawing/painting.

  3. I've never heard of these markers but I love how vibrant they are and the way you've achieved the background with the inks as well. lovely piece.

  4. This is wonderful! I love the colours you have used and the bright background really draws the eye into the subject. Butterflies! Yay!
