Inky Blue Posie


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!

  1. The illustration is lovely and that blue ink is very appealing. You have layered it so well to create depth and visual texture.
