GUIDE FOR INK DRAWING CHALLENGE: DAY 6

Updated: May 21


Day 6 “October Wedding"

I created a history of each day of my Inktober 2019 challenge. This article documents MY creative choices, and tools and materials used. The purpose is to guide future participants toward success.


Main Idea

The plan was to pictorially journal a recent wedding. During the ceremony, I sat in an outdoor table area, and only a few rows of chairs were in front. The altar was in a small barn-like setting. Perfect for Halloween!


Sub Ideas

Since the backs of heads were undistinguishable, they became pumpkins Though I mostly kept the character of the clothes and body position.

Elements were added for balance, like the corn at the side of the barn, and wine barrel with glasses. Brides and grooms traditionally toast. Appropriately, the venue was a winery. A Halloween wedding needs an owl, I felt, so why not a barn owl. I did not have much room for a sitting owl, so it flew also adding movement to the drawing.


Materials Used

Canson Bristol vellum paper, 100 lb. Pilot Metropolitan Collection fountain pen, medium nib. Black Noodlers ink. Ink is not waterproof even after dry. Low difficulty.
