Last week I put down the drawing of a neon FISH sign on watercolour paper and have since added some layers of colour to it. I'm a little loathe to show it at this point because its at its ugly stage, but I figured what the heck. We've all been there before and know (or at least hope) that it moves on into its swan stage sooner or later.
I masked the tubes of the sign and have started working into the ones on the left. To achieve an effect of glowing light, the washes must be at just the right level of dampness to blend the colours seamlessly. Its good in places and bad in places. There's a ways to go yet in terms of building layers of colour.
