This is another Saturday sketch from St Paul’s Square in Birmingham again using ink marks to build texture and tone without wash or water. It is clear there is more work needed to use just the varied marks themselves to narrate the scene.
I have switched inks to a permanent black carbon which may permit watercolour over it once dry. I also want to use less colour, adding a few simple strokes in key areas, not colouring in the whole picture. Less is more.
