I have been a little lost with painting lately, I keep starting, but then set pieces aside unfinished. Unsure of where I want them to go, or getting bored and wishing to move onto the next? Or is it because I have so many ideas, I just want to do them all before I forget? I have no idea, probably a combination of the above. Well this weekend I set to a catch up of these strangers lost in the bottom drawer. They are all painted using reference photos from Sktchy app, completed with a combination of ink and watercolour. I feel relieved that they are now complete, out of the drawer, and filed.

- 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
