My gosh I have surprised myself, this is the second piece I have finished today ( both dog – last post and seagull were started during the week) such light relief after the go slow nature of oil painting. This seagull came about when my friend James asked if I had painted one? Um, no, but anything is possible, so here he is, ‘Mr Fisher’, named aptly after James himself.

- 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
