Larry the Llama work in progress 2 in inktense

Following yesterday’s video of the initial ink drawing, here I am doing the first wash on colored ink using Inktense blocks by Derwent. First, I make puddles of Inktense color in a teal, a bright green, and a yellow-green. I tape off the image boundaries with pink painter’s tape to keep the outside ink-free. Then I work wet-on-dry onto the paper with my squirrel mop brush, starting with the lightest color and working toward the darkest. I let the very damp colors bleed into each other. I’ll let this dry, and do more tomorrow. Video sped up 10x. Ink and Inktense on cotton hotpress paper, 8″x8″.
