Rufus & Aubergines

Aubergines - Acrylic Inks and Watercolour 

Rufus - Acrylic Inks and Watercolour

I have discovered the joys of using acrylic inks as a drawing tool "sewn into" the form using washes. I absolutely love combining blue (cobalt magic colour), red (scarlet magic colour) and pink (process magenta) at the start. It pushes you out of your comfort zone and a predictable finish right from the get go. It is an exciting way to work, very immediate and forces you to find solutions en route. It is very important that the line describes the subject - its personality - not just outlines it. A must for the courageous draughtsman!
