I’m still playing with ink this week. This time I found an old black and white publicity still of silent movie star, Betty Blythe, and printed it out on cheap photo paper, then painted over it with my Winsor & Newton inks, this time Violet, Orange, Black and Red, with a little mixing among them for shading and effects.

To be honest, I wanted to do something a little more ambitious and abstract with it, but my fingers were not cooperating. Maybe next week.

This week’s experimental technique was the use of plastic brush picks (for good oral health) for some of the finer lines. It worked better than I expected, but the little bastards are hold to hold. I may have to wedge one into an X Acto knife handle or something in the future.
