    Foal
    Got anymore? Looking for kind of a over the shoulder looking away sketch for a tattoo. Got everything else pretty much figured out but the horse piece.

    That is the best one I think too.....you didn't lose the immediacy nor did it 'freeze' on you....I like it. Have you tried using Sellenier inks? They're a calligraphy ink and it has a shellac in it that adds a glow like nothing else and it washes like watercolor.....fantastic stuff!

    No. I haven't. I'll look into that. Just like tack, I love buying new art supplies.

    How is your work going?

    I have many paintings posted on different threads in the artwork forum. As for a tattoo sketch, I am not sure what you mean by looking over the shoulder.

    Also, the inks I mentioned, if you use them as a wash like watercolor they will go matte, however if you use the dropper to apply straight Undiluted ink over a wash it really glows. I like the sepia/walnut tones although some of the reds are fabulous.

    apparently they do not dilute with water. Not water based. Not sure how i'd paint with something I can't dilute with water. I need graduations to be happy.

    I am signed up to take a basic watercolor class , as I have never had any instruction in that medium. I just wing it.

    Ok quickly grabbed a bottle of the ink and threw some water on sketch paper...I only have giant sheets of WC paper and didn't want to waste one!!!

    Added the ink:
