Inky Water


Pond Life

Inktober is a drawing challenge where you create one ink drawing a day throughout the entire month of October. As well as creating digital drawings around the official Inktober prompt list, I have also created my own prompt list for this month's Inktober challenge. My own prompt word for this drawing is water. In this drawing a net lays next to the muddy banks of a pond. Maybe this is a sign of some past pond dipping, I wonder if they caught anything.

love the muddy, splotchy look. I think it really adds to the pond feel. how did you use the wax in your piece?

I used the wax on some areas of the stones, water, pebbles and net before adding the ink wash.

Very nice. That drawing has a lot of detail to it and certainly captures the essence of pond life. Well done!
