Inktober #11

I was busy with various things yesterday so I didn’t have time to upload yesterday’s Inktober piece. I decided to upload both yesterday’s and today’s ink pieces together.

|Inktober #10|

A small ink piece on an off cut of cardboard- it’s starting to feel like Autumn here in the UK finally- I wanted to reflect this.

|Inktober #11|

I created this drawing on a collaged page in my Moleskine- the page is covered with train ticket scans and gesso as a base for the top ink.

Inktober #9

|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.

New Artwork: Moleskine Pages

stories

Stories, acrylic ink, collage, cut text and pigment ink pen in Moleskine sketchbook.

Cut text reads:

That is the time of the year,

full of fog,

and little

consciousness.

I looked forward to tea,

and stories

in front of cheap

success.
