I felt like I was painting on blotter paper and not liking it. Rather than pack up and feel miserable, I kept going and the magic began to happen.
I should know better than to paint on scraps of mat board. Watercolor paper works so much better when using ink. I experimented with blue ink and red ink last night in addition to my usual black ink. When I opted to stick with it for a while longer, I switched to a more flexible pen point and dipped into the last few drops of my black ink. This painting of Chad Wynn turned the evening around and I ended up with a few gems.
Drawn first with black ink using a dip pen, followed by washes of watercolor.
