Starfish Studies in Ink

16 Apr

Starfish ink and stickBack to drawing with ink and stick. Have been teaching this technique to my students lately and it’s always freeing and intriguing. So simple but unpredictable. Have to always remember that picking up more ink means that the next mark you make will be darker than those to follow. Instead of drawing the shape in a linear fashion you need to jump from area to area, working from the dark to the light. Colour is put on lightly with chalk pastel. The contrast between the ink and the chalk enhances the image.
