As there was no Groovi Tuesday this week, we need a Workshop Wednesday instead, usually it will just be a little peek at a project I've done in a workshop, past or present, but as today is the first one we'll have a step by step...
Using Cobalt archival ink, stamp the lapwings in place, take note of where the big fella is at the bottom, cover the birds with masks. Put a border of low tac tape around all four sides and put a moon mask in place.
Prepare your Brayer with Clover adirondack ink
Brayer the sky, then the bottom area too, leave a nice band of white through the middle though.
Remove the moon mask and replace with the aperture part instead, gently add a little weathered wood ink along one side of the moon.
Remove all masks and masking tape.
Use a marker or pencil to add shade to the birds, note, I used an alcohol marker even though I stamped with archival, I was very very careful not to touch the stamped line art with the marker or it could make it bleed and ruin my pen.
Terrible shadow on this pic, sorry!
The finished one is a bit better, but I'll never be a photographer.
Thanks for stopping by, hopefully see you Friday for another piece of bodged artwork from heartbreak corner.
