My inky posie is in Birmingham Allegheny Observatory Celestial Blue ink.
This layered so nicely. I used 2-3 layers, which often doesn’t work,
but maybe thoroughly drying in between helps —
Or the slight water resistance in the ink.
I won’t be sketching in color other than linework in this ink
because I didn’t know the lines would stay and I didn’t like the sloppy colored lines
I added at the base to bring in the dark ones. Instead I will dip my brush tip in the ink.
Ink painting is a huge experiment for me!
