Advanced Anatomy: Ink Wash

Anatomy-inkwash1

a.k.a. I don’t know what the nuggets I’m doing! Today’s class was pretty exciting; I had my first experience with ink washing! Above is my first attempt; all I can do is shake my head and shrug… gotta start somewhere!

I think these next couple of tries show some improvement. As I have a background in oil painting (where you start with the dark areas), starting with a light-toned base and building on that was pretty counter-intuitive. Not to mention working with what is basically dyed water… I really enjoyed myself though, and hope to keep working at it. I have the tools, so to work I will put them!
