Ink pen, and a Mix of Media.

A woman’s face

Began with a quick sketch, using a black Uni pin fine line, pigment ink pen, on Mi-Teintes warm brown, 160gsm pastel paper. I prefer not to use a pencil drawing underneath. Added some colour with Inktense block washes, then added coloured pencil and graphite pencil. Softened the face a little with the smudge tool in the Procreate app, and applied a few more white highlights. This printed up well.

Also I did a black and white pigment ink print, onto 300gsm smooth cotton, Saunders Waterford, watercolour paper; and then added some Inktense colour washes, and a little graphite pencil – as seen below. Sorry about the slight blur from taking a photo of it at night. Though it does show the overall softness of it, which I was pleased to achieve.

I usually complete the original as well, and like how it becomes a sort of catylyst for further artworks.Print of a woman’s face
