TRICK?

OR

TREAT?

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

The above images were created for a Halloween challenge offered by Beth Parker.  Other artists’ work, who have participated in this challenge,  may be viewed by clicking on the links posted in her comment section on Beth’s post, here.

I created both of these images by drawing in waterproof  black ink, either with an eye dropper or a nib. I spritzed the ink with water while it was still wet. I allowed for some dripping of ink on the devil. I painted each of them in watercolor after the ink had dried. The glitter was attached  using acrylic matte medium. The devil’s background was created by flooding the background area with water and brushing in ink around the outer  edges of the paper. While the paper was still wet, I brushed in fire engine red and alizarin crimson watercolor into the background. This created the flame-like effects there.
