Flashback. In Color.

Remember these? Part of Art Camp Claudia McGill, held in August, they are simple sketches done in India ink, using two different mark-making tools – brush and steel brush.

I got hold of some Prismacolor and Tombow markers and look what happened.

Here’s another up-doed India ink sketch (I think I was trying to use up some ink on the Chinese brush when I did this one. It cried out for some coloring.) I do like patterns and color and I just couldn’t stop enhancing this face. In addition to the markers I also used a fine-line pen.

I have some more ink sketches. Maybe I’ll color some more. Relaxing to do while I watch TV.

    Thank you. I like making chair pictures I think because in each one I can imagine myself curled up and reading a book. My all time favorite thing to be doing.

    Yes. That India ink sets the tone and so the markers can be strong in color, too. The paper absorbs the ink and the markers well, too, maintains the look of the strokes, which I like, too.

    Yes. I would have done many things differently if I knew what I know now, but of course I didn’t, and I wouldn’t, if I hadn’t done what I did, so it’s just a big circle and in the end, well, it has all been fine. I am trying to spend more time on these and some other interests now, though, even if as an amateur.
