I saw this demo online today. I’ve never tried this ‘line and wash’ technique but I think it’s beautiful. If I can get it to work I think it will really suit me because I love to draw in ink but I miss the ability to use colour and to be more free flowing than ink sometimes allows (at least the way I use it).
The demo is by a chap called Dave Usher and is from YouTube. I really like his work. I like the way he captures the feeling of a beautiful cold day on the paper.
Here it is:
Now I think that’s fabulous!
(I’ve been a bit unwell recently, so I’ll probably be trying this next week.)
