Tree by the Lakeshore in Ink and Wash

If you're interested in ink and wash materials and techniques, check out my guest blot post today for the Goulet Pen Company on their Ink Nouveau blog site!

I sketched this last week at the lakeshore using a combination of Private Reserve Chocolat ink mixed with about 25% Private Reserve Velvet Black to cut the red a bit. After doing a line drawing, a waterbrush was used to form the midtones and shadows, using ink from the lines. The paper is a Stillman and Birn Beta sketchbook.
