This is a short how-to on a fast sketching technique with soluble inks…
Done in haste this morning for my peeps on Virtual Sketchwalk.
Finding a way into a complicated sketch is easier than we make it out to be,
and yes, I may make this look easy, but practice (hence sketch) and it will be easy for you.
I apologize for the images — middle of the night!
I began to hit the lines selectively with a fine point waterbrush,
moving quickly so as not to lay on too much water
(I don’t even have to squeeze mine) and leaving some areas with no water for definition. Trust me you will over do this sometimes and end up with a mess.
These messes can sometimes be cleaned up by coming back
with linework over the dried ink wash.
Don’t think too much, just give it a go…

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
