The Kitchen

This is my second drawing, trying out a new technique of drawing with pen, then using an inkwash to shade it and then a watercolour glaze. I had dark paper, that is definitely not made for paint or water (the pages are wrinkled and hard to keep flat).

This is my kitchen. It’s not this dark normally… but using dark paper and trying out the ink shading, I got a little carried away. But I still like this one. It’s has some personality. I discovered that you can just give a hint of a pattern and don’t have to worry about drawing it accurately. I am referring to my countertops. I spend a long time stressing about how to draw that pattern. But then I dropped some paint down and drew some squiggly lines and that was all I needed.
