A familiar view in ink and water

Posted on Dec 4, 2019

Today I sketched with a fountain pen and a water brush, but wonder if I went a little too far.

‪This is the view from Bruntsfield Place, looking towards the King’s Theatre and Edinburgh Castle. I was inspired by a Ronald Searle book a client gave me which featured the artists street drawings from Paris.

They looked to be drawn with a fountain pen or ink and a brush so I thought I would give it a go.

Not sure if I like it better without the water, but enjoyed the process of mixing on the paper. I think I just need to stop a wee bit earlier next time. ‬
