3 Minute Mill
I recently visited Denver Mill and, after indulging in a slice of their delicious madeira cake and making a quick sketch in the cafe garden, I pulled onto the side of the road to make this...an experiment...Copic markers and acrylic ink on canvas board.
I was wondering if it would be possible to sketch on canvas and ....it is...However, when I applied a coat of acrylic varnish, the markers livened up and smudged all over the place.
Oh well, worth a shot!
Luckily I spent only 3 minutes on this sketch and managed to photograph it before I applied the varnish, so all is not lost!
