Hiya, I’m Bekkerz.
Thanks for clicking on my video!
You didn’t have to, but you did so thank you for doing that for me.
Welcome to my video.
We are making this speedpaint.
Watercolor blacklight ultraviolet amazing UV speedpainting.
This was kind of an experiment.
One of my first ones…
I think this is my first official experiment of a finished piece using watercolor and uv ink to dilute it.
So it was an experiment and I think it came out cool.
I wish I had stopped a little earlier with blending.
I have a problem with over blending.

I do the same thing with my makeup.
I over blend things and then you can’t see them and there not as pretty anymore.
It’s sad.
But, I am learning.
So I pretty much just used some invisible UV ink, I used some watercolor tubes, I used I think three paint brushes.
I blended it out.
I got a cool effect, and you will see shortly it glows under UV blacklights.
Once it dried I like to draw on it with fountain pens.
I just decided to do a little doodle type drawing onto this pretty ultraviolet watercolor background.
It’s a pretty gradient.
I think it’s a pretty gradient.
I don’t know, what do you think?
Do you like the gradient?
Do you think I over blended it?
Could I have I have blended it more??
I don’t know!

This little dude is cool.
I think it looks like a gopher.
I might be crazy, but I think it looks like some sort of rodent.
Some sort of creature.
So technically, the ink I used was UV dye, ultraviolet dye.
It wasn’t ink.
And I just used the electric blue color which is a nice clear non-noticeable color.
It did make the whole piece kinda blue though under ultraviolet.
I might have used too much of it.
Like I said, this is my first piece trying this whole watercolor ultraviolet idea that I came up with a little while ago.
I think it’s awesome.
The first test piece I did I came out with a much cooler effect I think.
I will do that more in the future.
Where there is a lot more contrast and glowing effect only in the lighter parts of the piece.
But this piece is just a gradient.
I’m just kind of messing around, messing around…with watercolors still.

I’m learning.
I’m watching youtube videos.
They are amazing.
These people can make the coolest art in the world.
And I strive to be one of these people.
Which is funny (haha).
Haha, alright thanks for watching my video.
