Marsh - Ink and Wash
I've been working on some quick ink and washes to try to train myself to be a bit looser in my painting approach, and this training comes at a good time since work has been so busy!
This sketch is from a photo reference from Wet Canvas ... I really love ink and wash and I'd like to spend a bit more time 'playing' with this technique as well ...
I've begun using a small Arches "Carnet de Voyage' Travel Book for some of these exercises. The 140# cp paper and handy size (6" x 10") seem to encourage 'quickness' ... and for some reason, a relaxation of some of my 'tighter' approaches. I suppose the 'test' will come when I switch to larger paper!! LOL
