When inspiration strikes: Ida.

After going through all my drawings in the package I got yesterday I realised that I haven’t played around with ink as much as I used to. I really like how ink works, it’s dramatic, can add depth and can display light very well. It can be tricky as well, but it’s really fun to draw with it, especially if you play with ink pens instead of liquid ink and brushes.

So I’ve spent the evening making a portrait of my old friend Ida. This is one of her Facebook profile pictures that just had the most amazing light (and one amazing woman).
