Tonight I filled my Ohuhu waterbrush with a mix of diluted ink, first with Noodler’s Bulletproof Black. I added just a few drops and painted the background trees. I had to get the paper really wet, and I am not very fond of the way the ink granulated on the watercolor paper. Next, I refilled the brush with water and 10 drops of Kuretake Zig Cartoonist Ink and painted the items in the foreground. I am really pleased with the effect! It reminds me of Chinese ink paintings a bit, since I guess the medium is essentially the same.

It’s fun to “doodle” using the waterbrush and diluted ink. I’ll do more for sure in the future!

I hope you had a nice day!

Tonight I did a watercolor version of a sketch I did a few days ago. It’s so much fun to play with color! I used my Prima “The Classics” watercolors, plus a couple other Windsor & Newton colors that Bay got me for my birthday.

To see all the sketches I’ve been working on, you can check out the Flickr album “My Sketching Journey”, or my Instagram account barron.sketches which I created just for posting sketches, watercolors, and stationery items.

I hope you had a good day!
