"watercolour wash  +   ink"  
watercolour + ink ii

Maggie has prompted me to carry on exploring with ink and washes when she asked if i was going to add ink marks to my  last wash   . Here is a  recent bright watercolour wash which  I  randomly wet the surface of and just poured ink on ....a few  drips formed they reminded me of the tall lombardy popular trees..I liked how the ink pigment sedimented where I added extra water at the top ....I could have probably added a little extra detail as it was drying.


Maggie Latham  is currently posting a  wonderful series of ink wash tutorials on her blog

I like how you have used your wash and with some simple ink turned this into a really lovely piece. Will revist Maggies tips on this and maybe give it a try

They really are reminiscent of poplars, Jane. They have a lovely early evening feel to them. Gorgeous.

This is a beautiful tranquil painting, and very interesting use of ink.

Sandra Busby ha detto...

It is one of those paintings that makes you feel calm and relaxed... Therapeutic is probably the word I'm looking for! :0)

No me atrevo a mezclar tinta y acuarela, siempre creo que voy a estropear el cuadro.
Sin embargo tú dominas la técnica.

Buen resultado.
