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!

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
The illustration is lovely and that blue ink is very appealing. You have layered it so well to create depth and visual texture.
Oh shucks thanks!
