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!

Back in the studio today and warming up with some roses! Looking forward to trying some variation with line, layer and color. There is something wonderful about bright colors on a crisp, fresh piece of paper.

Before doing the final painting, I wanted to see if I could increase the vibrancy of the colors with more pigment, less water and a bigger brush.
