Inventorying my current inks . . . "Thinking aloud" in my journal which inks I want to continue using and which to discontinue when they are gone. I've already decided to give up Noodler's red-black but still have quite a lot left in the bottle --- too bad I don't have local sketching buddies to pass it on to!
Still debating on whether to keep De Atramentis document dark blue. I'm thinking I could mix it with a document red to get a water-resistant dark purple.
Over several days, I sketched our living room, before taking the tree down, using all the water-soluble inks. Then teased out the color with a waterbrush. Unfortunately Bearcat sitting on a footstool sort of washed out.
