New male nude

Just back from life drawing at Swansea Print Workshop where I did some experimenting with my new natural media, walnut sepia ink (I made this a few weeks ago) and Bideford Black, kindly sent to me by artists in North Devon. I was focussed on trying out these media to see what they can do. It was a nice surprise to find out that the Bideford Black is semi-soluble in water but more soluble in the walnut ink, possibly because the ink contains 20% alcohol (surgical spirit) so maybe it’s acting as a solvent? I used Fabriano Accademica paper and applied the ink with a sable brush.

      Thank you.Completely accidental. I was sitting down with the rollof paper draped over the drawing board in my lap so I couldn’t see the top half when I was drawing the bottom. They wouldn’t let me staple it to the wall lol 🙂
