GUIDE FOR INK DRAWING CHALLENGE: DAY 11 & 12


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


Day 11, Image Outline


History

Saw my teen granddaughter resting and remembered how much she asks for pumpkin pie…all season in fact. I am sure she even dreams about pumpkin pie. I drew her image from memory.


Materials Used

Canson Bristol vellum paper,100 lb. Sakura Pigma FB permanent (no bleeding) fine point felt tip pen. If you do not keep pressure on pen consistent, thickness and value of line is impacted. Low difficulty.


Day 12 (Wash and texture)

I painted ink washes over the Day 11 drawing. I mixed carbon ink with water. I applied these washes with a Princeton # 8 round synthetic sable brush for smaller areas. The ink didn’t bleed. The drawing surface did not allow me to lighten washes (un-sized paper), it at least was not too spotty when I applied smooth washes. But at times, I let the ink wash puddle to create mild texture. Low difficulty.
