Robert Oster’s Monsoon Clouds Ink Sketches


I don’t usually show the images I sketch from, but this is an exception.
This is a view I see almost every night:
Savitri curled into my right side while I try to sketch.
She thinks she helps,
and as I get a good amount of sketching done, perhaps she does.


From that image, I made a line drawing in an ink that is very different,
Vanness’s Exclusive, Robert Oster Monsoon Clouds,
which is no longer sold (but a gurl can hope, HINT HINT).


I moved the smokey-purple-grey ink to shade the drawing with a waterbrush.
I hoped would influence the watercolors over the top in an interesting manner.


I love the way this sketch turned out!
I love the interesting color shifts and will use this ink again and again with watercolors.


Vanness’s Exclusive, Robert Oster Monsoon Clouds (which is no longer available).
Or perhaps they will get more in —
Please, if you are listening, I know I will want more of this ink if I can get it.
Full review Friday!
