Dennis, if the ink gets 'washed out' looking, is it possible to redraw the ink on top... or would that spoil the effect?  ???
Cheers, Val

Val, it's no problem going over the lines again with ink - you're supposed to see the ink lines in this type of painting.
This style, if executed properly, gives a very fresh and novel type of painting. It is also used a lot in book illustrations - specially children's books.

Oh my word... I have been gone from the forum...almost since the weekend... just did a quick pop-in here and there... I come back to almost a 'book' to go through  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: Dennis/Nolan, I can relate to when you came back from your leave and trying to play catching up.

The Paint Basket Forum explodes with the most amazing paintings.  :clap: :clap: :clap: wow.  Guys/gals, all of your paintings are beautiful. Well done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
