I quite often have a watercolor piece that just doesn’t work, but more often than not, I can improve it by adding some skritchy ink lines………. Hey, in my head, Skritchy is a legitimate word………. Anyway, I took this 3 hour class in Mesa, and the point was to loosely lay down color for your image, then define it slightly with ink. I was using a sketch journal, so the paper buckled a bit with the water and paint.
What do you think – are they better with, or without, the ink?
