|Inktober #9|

Inspired by the beautiful stormy weather here in the UK at the moment.

With this piece I experimented with some acrylic ink layering in my Moleskine. The base layer is a printout of a book scan (the standard Moleskine sketchbook isn’t really designed to hold this much wet medium so this helps protect the pages underneath) and I mixed the ink together with water straight on to the page with the help of a sponge.

This has about 5 thin layers of mixed ink- each layer was left to dry in between. I then drew in the bottom form and the top clouds with black ink and finished with white ink pen lines.
