InkTober Day #31

For my lastInkTober entry I decided to do 2 ink paintings of the same scene using X-PressIt blending card (which I normally use with my Copic markers) on the left and Arches cold pressed watercolor paper on the right.

Sandy Allnock’s Art-Classes.com currently offers a free watercolor landscape paint-a-long and this night scene was one of the options.  Artsnacks offered an Inktober bundle and in it they included a bottle of Kuretake’s Sumi Ink 60 and a paint brush. I was dying to paint with the ink so instead of using the wonderful, deep blue and purple watercolors, I mashed it up so that I could do the scene in black and white using only the ink.

Thank you for following and I hope you enjoyed InkTober 2017!

In honor of World Watercolor Month, I am taking the Fresh Florals Watercolor class at art-classes.com with Sandy Allnock. Today I practiced my Trilliums in preparation for their portrait. It is fun and relaxing to practice different shapes and techniques – no pressure.
