More Fun With Drawing With Ink Pads

Have you tried drawing with your ink pads yet? I have! I've been making some more art journal pages using ink pads since I posted the Drawing With Ink Pads Video last week. You can see I've gone very much for a nature theme to follow on from the stylised tulip a drew using ink pads in the video. Nature subjects seem to work well to this style of drawing.

I've been sticking with my bigger ink pads as I really like that you can't be too precise with the larger sizes. It is a little like using a large paint brush to define a form, you have to remain quite loose and try not to worry about the small details. And the texture you get just adds to the whole picture.

So here are a few more pictures drawn with ink pads.

For these drawings I used Fabriano Accademia paper and my colour palette was the Hero Arts Mid-Tone Ink Pads (Butter Bar, Orange Soda, Raspberry Jam, Stone Wash, Forever Green, Wet Cement) and the My Favorite Things Ink Pads (Sour Apple, Kraft).
