Another week of Inktober and I’m quite pleased to have stuck with it for 16 days. Hoping to make it through the end of the month, a little inking everyday. Are you doing the Inktober challenge? If you are, what are your thoughts on it? Here are some of my sketches from this week.
Flowers in Iron Gall Ink.
A subject that appears often in my sketches: My daughter doing her homework.
And one that doesn’t appear so often at all. Little doodles from my imagination. This one done while waiting for an appointment. I had no idea where it was going when I started working on it. Glad I carry my supplies everywhere.
It’s persimmon season. So fun to draw, I bet these fruits will make an appearance in my sketches for a while. This first sketch is entirely in colored ink. DeAtramentis Document Ink on watercolor paper.
And this one is brush pen and pastel on toned paper.
My skull (that just sounds strange!) arrived in the mail this week so I’ll be drawing studies of it for a while. Brush pen and Noodlers ink
And ink washes.
I’m also working on a larger project I’m really excited about (more on that soon) and I find that all this inking is influencing how I am working on my current pieces. Here is a peek at some of what I’ve worked on this past week.
That’s about it for my week in little sketches.
