Inky Thursdays continue

A3 brown paper, opaque white gel pen as well as coloured fine tip markers, 2 1/2 hours.   Next week, I might try a gold gel as well.  If you arrive late to a group portrait session (as I, ahem, may do), only the seats at the extreme sides of the model tend to still be free but  I’m starting to rather enjoy the antique effect of a profile portrait.  Perhaps it’s time to start a series?

Going dotty

Ink dots – stippling if you want to use the correct term – are one of my favourite ways of playing with ink, a soothing change of pace from scribbling in a mad frenzy.
