Near Buttermere Lake District in Inktense
I am finding that there are several very exiting ways of working with inktense, one way which I used here is to go very strong color harmonies on the lower layers to establish the 'glow' that is often seen particularly in sky's and distance. Once I had established these color ranges I built up tones with overlaid complementary colors and darker hues. I also discovered a new technique of using a scrap of watercolor paper as a palette, scribling on 2 inktense colors then picking up the mix on the waterbrush. I will make videos to describe these techniques more fully in future.
