That's awesome. I'm not feeling the whole phili thing the way I see the city, but I can totally see where you're coming from. Brilliant work, what are you using, ink with brush? water color? water color paper? I'm really interested, please let me know. They way you compose your images just keeps my eye going in and out of it all the time, I always see something new or different everytime I look, or maybe the way you do it just makes me feel as if I'm seeing something new everytime. Great work

That's really cool, I've never worked with colored ink, how does that work? Do you layer the colors, can you draw in with the black and put color over it and the black shines through? Or do you put the black over the color? I've been experimenting a lot with ink lately, so I'm curious. Are you using pens, or from a bottle with a brush, or using both?

i use a nib witha bottle for the line work mostly..then i wait for it to dry and put masking tape all over the canvas..then i cut out where i want to leave white from the paper and pull all the tape up where i want the colored ink for the background to go. then i use a sponge and wash the ink on with water and then peel the tape off where i wanted it white..makes good contrasts...i then add the blacks i want usually i will paint in the large sections with india and a bruch..then i add white inks and then i pen things to make them better ...and obviously before anything i sketch on watercolor paper with pencil or just splash ink and see what i can do with it :-)
