Thurs. Mar. 31 INK: Flowers and Skulls
Avi Scheuenstuhl's drawing (middle) is a beautiful example of sharp line quality and rich gradations achieved through cross-hatching. And lastly, Charlie Sismore's drawing (bottom) employs wash techniques. Washes are produced by mixing incremental amounts of ink into water creating gray tonalities. The dripping blood is perfectly complemented by the smooth gray, washes.
