I am really enjoying doing these inksketches. If only now I can start thinking outside the box..
Inktober7: Nibpen and wash in Stillman and birn sketchbook.
“Enchantée, dlighted to make your acquintance”.
Inktober 8: Frail. Collage, ink and nibpen in Stillman and birn sketchbook.
Inktober 9: Swing. Brushpen in Stillman and birn sketchbook.
The next three inktober contributions. I am still finding it difficult. It is as though my originality has dried up. I think a good idea would be to continue doing inktober drawings until the end of the year. By then I should at least have found some zing.
Inktober 4: Build. Ink and pen in stillman and birn sketchbook.
This wheelbarrow has seen better days, but it can still get the job done.
Inktober 5. Freeze. Ink and nib pen in stillman and birn sketchbook.
This is the African penguin, commonly known as the Jackass penguin.
Inktober 6. Husky.Ink and wash in Stillman and birn sketchbook.
I couldn’t come up with my own reference for a husky dog, so our German shepherd was the next best thing.
I have decided to join Inktober this year. A whole month of using mainly ink. I haven’t sketched in such a long time and I can feel the stiffness of my arm, the laziness in my observation and even my artistic interpretation is rusty. So this Inktober will be a good challenge to get back into the groove.
