Painting #63 Shorebird in Ink

I have seen and admired Elva's use of water soluble ink so I had to try it.
I love it!

This is the first sketch I did of a shorebird (hand carved by a friend).  I added a bit of watercolor for interest and to see how the two mediums reacted together.
I really love how fast a sketch can be done with the addition of water for shading.

Thanks for opening my eyes Elva.

I agree with Elva, this is very pretty! I may have to try this water soluble ink too!
