I started with ink, but slipped into colored pencils, very few, over the ink. I don’t have enough ink colors and red from Faber-Castell artist brush pen didn’t want to accept water at all. Blue connects everything and making smart face.
Ink bleed interesting way on this hairy paper, giving it a little vintage look. Past this cute house yesterday on the way from Garfield place in Brooklyn.
Chuckie was named by my daughter when she was 7 after the Chuckie from “Rugrats”, red haired funny character from cartoon. He was my first cat, before I thought that I am a dog person. He used to ride in my daughter’s doll baby carriage, sometimes wearing white hat with the frills, sometimes deliberately jump into the stroller and roll till it stops, hitting the wall. Now he is a patriarch of the family and often get tossed around by Fellini, younger generation. Ink in watercolor Moleskine A4.
Inna in ink. This is the last page of my Moleskine large. Very sad. Really liked it Watercolor paper. It started with “Chinese bakery” on October 30, 09. Anyway I used ink (mixed myself) and played a little with Axe-cut strokes in the hair, holding brush angular, Pentel water brush is the best.
