Inktober 2018 : Days 20 – 23

Four more spreads today and I’m sure no one will be surprised my favorite is Day 21 – Scallions.

I have two new markers that I filled with yellow and green FW Inks. They put down a juicy amount that can be spread easily with a brush.

I’m also trying a different marker with the FW white ink. It’s not as opaque as the Higgins white I’ve been using, but I don’t care, it flows so much better I don’t mind going over a line or two if I need to.

Inktober 2018 – Days 8 – 11

It’s been a very busy autumn hasn’t it? I think I’ve heard that same complaint from everyone… myself included. Just an observation, not an excuse for being lax with my posting but I admit, I have been lax!

Here’s to catching up a bit!

Yes, all ink… even the Honeycrisp apple.

The last image is of a peeled Clementine… I forgive you for not recognizing it, it’s my least favorite.

Inktober… Days 5, 6 and 7

We were camping over these days but I brought my sketchbook and packed my pens knowing I could manage a few minutes to draw. I even brought a head of garlic so I’d have a model at hand once our tent was set up.

The pumpkin was soon carved into a jack-o-lantern while the grapes kept me from the chips and dip. Another successful camping weekend done!

… It Must Be Inktober

Yes, it’s October and that means Inktober!

This is the fourth year I’m participating but this year I’m not going to use any of the official prompts or any Sktchy photos as I did last year.

What I will be doing is drawing various produce using assorted waterproof and water-soluble inks in a Strathmore 500 Mixed Media Journal with pre-painted spreads. A friend in one of my art-related Facebook groups suggested this as a daily challenge… not necessarily for Inktober. She jokingly named it #dailypotato and, even though our scope of subjects has already expanded beyond potatoes, the name has stuck.

Day 01

Thinking of joining Inktober and still looking for this year’s prompts? You can find the list at the link above … or…..

Remember… I’m not using the prompts. Peppers are not poisonous!
