Jellyfish pink

Another jellyfish, this one entirely with FW liquid acrylic. I bought a magenta and a pearlescent pink to try out these acrylics (which are cheaper than the Liquitex inks). It seemed to work okay, but I think for the regular colours I prefer the Liquitex, but for the pearlescent colours the FW liquid acrylics are brilliant. I have found that the Liquitex metallics are lumpy and don’t spread well.

I only took two WIP shots for this one, so here they are as well as the final photograph taken on my cell phone.

And here is the scanned image. Again, those pearlescent inks don’t seem to scan very well, so it’s a lot more shimmery in real life!
