What do we think of Ink?

We like it! This week my classes worked in pen, looking once more at tonal values in black and white as a vital way to understanding Colour. 

Small demo from my sketch book. 
The amazing thing about Inks are their sheen. The colour, even when laid on top of diluted black ink as it is here, is vibrant and alive. It SINGS.

Another small demo
And when you lay colour on top of neat black ink, it transforms the black into the most delicious, rich velvety dark, ever.

Below are some lovely student pieces.
