Maggie the office art dog

I have been watching Art Race, a Sky Arts programme, and really enjoyed the work done by Kenny Harris. He inspired me to get out my cartridge pen and play with the ink and water thing again. It is so much more restrictive than watercolour and it doesn’t allow for errors much. Ok, so not good if you like to get things perfect but great for making you commit to what you put on the paper.
I think it is a great excercise for speeding up and honing your drawing. The addition of water softens the hardness of the ink but it is very easy to overwork.

About lisabutlerart

Lisa Benson (was Butler - hence the name) is who I am and I create graphic design and original artwork. I started out as a portrait artist, more through demand than anything, and as graphics became more and more accessible it seemed natural to include that in what I do. View all posts by lisabutlerart
