Happy Accident

5/8/14 Diamine Grey, mixed brown inks (2-min. poses)
For the two-minute poses at Gage life drawing this morning, I tried using waterbrushes filled with inks, which I usually use for shading. Although one brush had plenty of brown ink, for some reason it wasn’t flowing well (and eventually stopped flowing altogether; I guess it needs some maintenance), so it gave an unexpectedly pleasing dry-brush effect, similar to sumi ink painting. I probably can’t do it on purpose if I tried, but it was a happy accident.
