Inky Sky #notinktober


Pure color.

Not easy to do a wash in inks (or watercolor, but I find the latter easier).
I think it is because you are adding a bit of water in the waterbrush,
and the ink doesn’t really want to be diluted with the water.
Plus a waterbrush itself is not a great brush — but a convenience..


As I was painting this I was listening to this I was listening to the end
of the California Grizzly’s life on the planet and thinking about
the consequences of our actions and how stupid modern man is compared
to indigenous people who lived in harmony with them for centuries.


We’ve learned nothing from past mistakes,
which is the very definition of stupid.
