Inktober 31, 2015

Day 31 of Inktober 2015.  I made it!  Hooray! 

Overall I'm pretty happy with the drawings.  Some good ones - - some ok ones - - but the commitment of creating a new piece each day for 31 days was what it was all about.  

This last drawing/painting is actually layer upon layer of an ink wash.  50/50 black ink and water mixed in a waterbrush and painted on watercolor paper.  I then used an ebony pencil over the top to add some of the textural elements.

This gargoyle was painted from a photo I took at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Strasbourg France - - an incredibly beautiful city.
