My 2015 Christmas ‘thank you’ cards, are quick watercolour sketches, a boxer dog for a patient at work ( I had said I would paint one for her a little while ago). A hare ( of course),and lastly a selection of cockerels, mainly because they were quick!

- Inky horse, sketchy. Black Diplomat ink. Despite this ink being a very weak black tone it, has great shading ability. Today I used a smooth thin card, rather than watercolour paper to see the difference in behaviour of the ink. I love the way the ink lays down, however the paper quality is poor, so I have curling and buckling as it can’t cope with water. I guess if I invest in a heavier gsm smooth paper it could work, I did not want to use smooth watercolour as too absorbing of water, so I don’t believe would create as good a shading effect? I think an experiment is needed 😀#diplomatink #inkpainting #horseink
