Ok, looking over my shoulder to the drawing table behind me, and concluded it was a mess. Always good to fix this moment in time in an image. But tomorrow everything will return to a state of pristine cleanliness and order.
I have been experimenting with combinations of gouache, Flex Markers, and Indian, or Chinese ink a lot these days, so every drawer has been emptied onto the table.
Rohrer und Klingner’s ‘Antiktusche’, color ‘Bister’, is a great deep dark brown, without being too black.
