#inktober 14th, 15th & 16th…
On the 14th I nearly forgot so did a quick sketch late at night…On the 15th I experimented with adding red pencil to pentel brush pen…...and on the 16th we had some peculiar visitors at the end of our garden.
#inktober 13th: palette
Today I didn’t find time to draw anything, so for #inktober I’m posting a scrap of paper that started as I doodled a few characters then got reused as a palette as I tested out different inks last week.
Sometimes I think there’s more life in these scraps than in the finished pieces – I overlap colours as I test them in a way I daren’t try in something I’m going to show people. So…maybe I need to see if I can bring some of that into my artwork.

I thought of choosing a list of themes for Inktober this year…but instead I decided to concentrate on experimenting with my palette.
I snipped some colours out of paint charts (mixing colours I wouldn’t usually use with a few favourites) and chose one this morning with my eyes closed.
It was pink and I was really tempted to put it back and start the random colour selecting tomorrow, as I’d envisaged this little scene in red – but I made myself stick with it and ended up enjoying it. (I allowed myself to choose green to go with it, which helped).
So here’s to a whole month of different colours!
