Hi guys!
Iv been realy busy and had no time to do the thing I love most which is drawing.. So I havn't have much to update..but here are a couple of new ones.. Sorry for the rubbish quality on some!! Scanner packed in

(and also the line across some images is because i'm using an A4 scanner and they are A3 images! So I have to stitch two images together lol)

these are great!! I , too, use ink wash. But you really handle it much better than I do. Can you tell me how you do this where part of the drawing is what looks like graphite drawing, and then the background is ink wash, and it doesn't run into the dog at all?



And how do you get that kind of "star" look in the background wash?

Hello well, I sketch the portrait first, then think about where I would like the darkest areas of ink. So I can then do a wash over the back drop cutting as close to the portrait as possible, and add big blotches of ink so it bleeds and finish using a fine brush to cut in

I hope that makes sense! Haha

Amazing artwork!

**I must not forget to thank the difficult horses, who made my life miserable, but who were better teachers than the well-behaved school horses who raised no problems.**
