I saw a painting a few weeks back where the artist had mixed neon gouache w/ watercolours to make more vibrant colours.. Gouache is definitely on my "someday when i have money again" list... in the meantime, I still wanted to have bright watercolour effects.. So I've been painting w/ highlighters :)
It actually works pretty well, since highlighter ink is designed to be bright & transparent..
I scribbled the highlighters on a slick, plastic wrapper (so the ink wouldn't dry too fast) & just added some water with my paint brush. Voilà! Neon watercolour ;)
I like it :)
Here are a few more of my tiny paintings..
