A FPR mufti pen with an ultraflex nib drew my squirrely friend
(a tea infuser — shouldn’t everything be this delightful?) in Krishna Green Ghat ink;
a waterbrush touched the lines selectively and added color from the nib.
I was a little more patient about adding second layers of darker color this time,
but still had some unplanned blooms on Squirrel.
As i try to work with ink painting, I am paying attention to quick sketches;
this one took about a half hour (dry time included).
I added some white touches with pens and crayons…
I’m never happy with the tools themselves. They don’t start or skip, argh.
Truth? The fiestaware cup is green but Squirrel is orange.
