Fire Engine Red Posie

On smooth  Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchbook paper
I sketched this bright red flower, then touched the waterbrush to the lines,
sometimes dipping back into the ink.

I may be getting the hang of working with ink with fewer blooms>.
*as in watercolor blooms, not posies!*
Second picture is for you to see the brilliance of the incredible red
that is Robert Oster Fire Engine Red ink.

    Glad you confirmed blooms v posies. You had me wondering, Katie!


  3. Beautiful illustration. I actually encourage blooms and pigment puddles in my ink and watercolour work but I appreciate that it takes skill to not create them accidentally.


I love hearing from visitors!
