I am asked this a lot,
and it is on my inks page,
but thought I’d repost it here.
For my large ink test
I laydown roughly
a half-square of ink, above.
I let it dry, then load
the bottom half of
the imaginary square
with water, and just touch
the edge of the dry ink…
except for the far right corner,
where I scrub the ink with
my brush to see how it moves.
Occasionally you will see
two images for the same ink.
This is because it is a color
that changes in different
lighting so very much!
I like to use the paper that I am going to use in my actual artwork, so I
use Hahnemühle Nostalgie Sketchbook or Hahnemühle Watercolour Journal,
Love me some Robert Oster Motor Oil!

That annoying loud-mouth editor/critic in your head? GONE! How great would that be?
Now I want to play with my ink. Thanks!
