My sister gave me 6 new ink colours for Christmas. Here is a first drawing to test them out.
Blue. Terracota. Orange. Sepia. Violet. Grass Green.
It was Sarah’s birthday this week, so I drew her this card.
Nib, ink and coloured with inks, which annoyingly smudged with the black ink that hadn’t quite dried yet. When will I learn to be more patient?!
The cat is meant to be swiping at the lower bird, but I think just looks alarmed, which sorta works, I guess.
I’ve bought some new colours of ink and really wanted to play with them.
I didn’t spend any time working on the joke, but had fun with Red, Yellow, Ochre in addition to the green, blue and black I had already.
It’s also very nice to be back drawing, having spent a lot of time on the Christmas cards recently.
