Line and wash

June 13, 2022

This is a new practice for me. The drawings are sketched out in pencil, then very basic lines are drawn in using a fineliner pen, just to define main outlines and features. Then layers of diluted india ink are applied to work up the values and create a greyscale rendering. Finally (optional step), very thin layers of watercolour are applied to ''colorize'' the image. The first example, of a dachshund, has been left uncoloured to give an idea of the process.
