Work in Progress

I have been working away at this one over the last week or so. The support had been layered with rice paper and dried. Then I started out by spraying the surface with water and sketching with an India Ink Inktense Pencil [they are fast becoming one of my favourite markmaking tools]. Then I painted wet into wet with inks and acrylics.

After that layer dried, I started painting out to reshape things and glazing with fluid colours, and used the Inktense for additional markings.

The last layer was mostly more markings with the Inktense and a bit more glazing to deepen colours. As usual, there are parts I really like, but I think I will have to live with it a bit longer before calling it done.
