Texture explorations with black ink

Though it’s often good to plan a drawing out with pencil before the process of inking, this assignment just has you ink right away. Make a grid on yor paper 5×6 is a fine way to do it. Fill in each square with a unique texture. If you are familiar with zentangles, it’s similar to that.

Then we put food coloring and water in spray bottles. We cut out stenciled and put them on photocopies of our original art and sprayed color on them.


Wowwwwwww so pretty!
