Old blue update
The dotting bug has captured me and I fitted in some time early this morning and tonight on the little blue boat. The scan of pointillism doesn't give good colour, so I took some photos and they have a truer colour representation, despite the less than white background.
I added a light wash of coloured pencil to highlight some of the areas that the early morning light is touching. I was going to use more coloured ink, but my other .18 pen decided it didn't want to work under any circumstance. I think its been sitting there awhile unused and may need a longer soak to help it see sense. The finer nibs on technical pens do have their moments. Perhaps its time to invest in a few more.
But right now I'm so tired I could fall asleep standing up so no more dotting for me tonight and tomorrow's may be sketchy as I have a workshop to go to and another again on Sunday. But there's no rush is there?
