So, after a LOT of pages with gouache that left me, meh.....the sumi ink stone arrived in the mail and I've been playing. It is SO much more fun. So much more varied and variable, it plays with the paper and changes tones as you work. It is lovely to grind it too.....very sensual as it all changes texture in the process.
So, here's a couple of bits that I played with. This stuff rings out. Ideas are shaping which is a lot of fun.
Just play, but this stuff is FUN
