Line and wash character sketches

June 14, 2017

 

Here are some line and ink sketches that I recently created.

 

I really enjoy using this medium.

 

I normally try to develop the line and wash together, rather than 'filling in' a line drawing.

 

I like the line to remain crisp, so I dip the pen in a waterproof ink and then use a water-soluble ink for the washes.

 

Here, I've used Winsor and Newton inks and a Speedball pen on smooth hot-pressed paper.

 

I always let ink dry naturally. I never use a hairdryer!
