Like Fire– many layers of acrylic ink, watercolour, ink pen on paper.
This piece is inspired by the poem Like Fire by thephilosophersotherstone on Tumblr:
autumn paints the leaves
in memories of blazing sun
darkening trees shrouded
in red, gold, and rust
tiny solar flares dance
among branches and limbs
as the cycles of life
calm down all around us
through darkening days
and chilling nights
lights play in our hearts
calling echoes of summer
Link to the poem.
I definitely recommend checking out his other wonderful writing.
8 Minutes, acrylic ink and thread on card, 6 x 6.7cm
This was made with a couple of centimetres of white thread left over from the bf’s cosplay project, a piece of card off-cut and acrylic ink in 8 minutes.
[Note– I completely forgot to post this last Inktober update on this blog- it was posted in October on other various social media/blogs]
Inktober and Drawlloween days 30 and 31– Spider, Dragon
My last two Inktober drawings for this year.
Both pieces are inked with a Letraset fineliner, Daler Rowney acrylic ink and a water spray bottle in my A6 sketchbook.
Inktober and Drawlloween day 28- Scarecrow
A scratchy, inky scarecrow scene for today’s drawing.
This piece is inked with Pilot V5 ink fineliner, Daler Rowney acrylic ink and small detail brushes in my A6 sketchbook.
Inktober and Drawlloween day 28- Black Cat.
A little black cat and friendly spider silhouette for today’s drawing. I’m really liking watering down and layering ink recently.
Uni Pin pigment ink liners and Daler Rowney acrylic inks in my A6 sketchbook
Inktober and Drawlloween day 27– Witch
Witch Hazel and Kiki (and Jiji of course) riding their broomsticks by each other. I couldn’t decide on which character to draw so I ended up drawing both of them together.
I’m not sure if I’m happy with the sea in this piece- I started using an India ink brush pen and then realised that it didn’t really give the effect that I wanted. I did scan in the line art before adding the ink so I may create another piece with it, maybe something mixed media next time.
The landscape below was done entirely with different layers of ink and a tiny brush.
Uni Pin pigment ink liner, Faber Castell grey brush pen, Daler Rowney acrylic inks on A5 250 gsm paper.
Inktober and Drawlloween day 26– Rat
Another small drawing, I decided to draw a rat silhouette on one of the small ink cards I created a couple of months ago. I have three left to decide what to do with.
You can still see some of my pencil lines as this type of card did not agree with the eraser that I have.
This piece is inked with Daler Rowney acrylic ink, brushes and a Uni Pin pigment ink liner.
