Ink Ripples

ripples-and-flower_web Ink Ripples – Colored inks on high bond ink paper 12″x15″

Rendered with dip pens (outlines), colored with felt tip pens, and brushed ink black background.  The most difficult aspect of this simple doodle is the size.  12″X15″ requires arm movements, rather than hand movements, to make the multiple ripple lines in ink.  Using open pen is always risky for ink drops and spills; after several hours of doing this piece, I thought I had made it without accident as I finished up line corrections.  Just as I went to put the dip pen away I dropped one last small drop.  I left it rather than deal with it. Go ahead, it is not hard to spot.  It started as a doodle, after all.
