Inks

I wanted to try the watercolor inks that I found at Hobby Lobby recently.  I drew a rough sketch just to get an idea of what went where.

The inks are very saturated. I was using 1/2 a drop, adding water and watching it paint for a very long time.  That was surprising.

I threw the color down very fast just to get a feel for intensity, how much water do you use, and how does this differ from tube watercolors?

I grabbed a black fine point pen and a Signo white pen and doodled on it and within 15 minutes I had a quick little floral. I liked the inks.  They are highly concentrated and I clearly have a lot to learn about how to work with them.  

More play - more learning. Gotta love that!
