Inktober 8, Summer Artichokes in my Da Vinci Monterey Trio!

Mmmmm, this summer the organic artichokes were amazing.
We had them every week!
This is one of those tests of soul-mate compatibility:
Are you a hot butter or a Mayo person?  (NO Miracle Whip!)

My ink-only sketch was too fuzzy to show!

I dunno what took me so long to finish this…
Stalled mid-point, didn’t finish, and finally
went crazy with more ink and watercolor.  Sometimes the only way to save a sketch
is to be fearless! Remember when I told you
I often watercolor over colored waterproof inks?  This sketch was created with Super5
Australia ink, right, in a Conklin Pen with a
Goulet 1.1 stub nib (hate the Conklin nib.
My Monterey Da Vinci Trio colors work wonderfully with this purply-brown ink!
