Milano, Italy [RESULTS]

Postby jiwaki » Sun Oct 14, 2012 9:51 pm

I couldn't join the group in the morning and I was only able to sketch in the evening, so this is my "more sketch than crawl" drawing for the 37th Sketchcrawl:

Beautiful! I love those dramatic blacks. Did you paint them with ink? If so, how do you manage carrying it and using it?

I have been on 6 sketchcrawls now, and most have been piccolo, maybe 2 or 3 people. Good for you for sketching even without a group.

Thank you Debora!
I painted the blacks with indian ink. I use a little bottle (30ml) of ink and a not so precious brush to lay it (when I'm out of home I clean this with a paper tissue). I usually carry them with me along with watercolours. Anyway, tomorrow I'll try to take a picture of my equipment and upload it here. :)
Thanks again and I'm glad you liked the sketch!

Very nice sketch. I like the drama of the rich dark ink too.

I like the dark ink sketch and the contrasting green - very good

I forgot to photograph the rest of the watercolours set, but at least you can see the "ink set". Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures.

On the right a freezer bag with the LeFranc&Bourgeois 30ml bottle, the cheap brush which I use for ink and a paper tissue to clean it.

And here a close up on the bottle and the brush.

You just have to be careful of where you place the bottle of ink while you keep it open! :)

Thanks! Now I just have to find enough courage to carry a bottle of ink in my kit.
