drawing portraits with De Atramentis document inks
|pen and ink drawing, 5 x 7 inches
Last week the urge to draw hit me and I focused on drawing portraits with De Atramentis document inks. For Man with a Cape, I started out with yellow to draw the outline and then added darker colors like fuchsia, turquoise and fog grey.

For the female portrait, Girl I, I colored in the background with fuchsia, yellow and a mix of orange.

I love how vibrant these inks stay once they are applied to the paper, even as a wash of color. Above is Girl with a Pink Collar and I used yellow for her cheeks and fuchsia for her collar.
wishing everyone a good week and joining sunday sketches.
