II. Show example of ink still life
Before beginning, prepare the work surface by
rolling a piece of masking tape and sticking it to the
bottom of the ink container and securing it to your
work surface. Fill container with water.
Wet the watercolor paper by running it under the
sink and fully saturating it with water. Or soaking it
with a sponge saturated with water until the entire
surface of the paper glistens. Do not blot.
Paint a contour of the object or objects you are
observing with a brush dipped in ink.
NOTE>do not blot paper. The ink will run or fuss-
Continue to build and develop the image more fully
as the paper continues to dry out. As the surface
dries, the ink will become more controlled.
Use small brushes and/or quill pens to add finishing
touches or embellishments. Or you can rewet the
surface of the paper for less controlled line.
