Painting with India Ink over life drawings

A few weeks ago, I shared a post where I was painting over a few life drawings with acrylic and watercolor crayons. This week I am going to show you how to use that same method, but while painting with India ink over life drawings.

What I like about this technique is that you can record the information about the contour and shading of the drawing while in class and then paint with ink afterwards, even if you can’t see the model or look at a reference picture.


Here is a first video where you can see all the processed explained, then on the second video you can see a quick time-lapse of the same method on a different example.
