India Ink

Tuesday night we made drawings using India Ink.  Ink is probably the least forgiving of drawing mediums due to the fact that you cannot erase.  In order to make tonal gradations, you must employ a hatching (lines) or stippling (random dots) technique.  The closer the line or dot patterns the darker the value.  Cross hatching, parallel hatching, short hatching and stippling techniques were discussed during the slide lecture.  We returned to drawing from wine bottles as our subject. The drawing here is my demo drawing.
