INKtober day six–hide & go seek

so
since i made a picture for fidgit, i had to make a picture for iggy. he asked for it yesterday, but i didn’t want to do two humpback whale pictures in a row. he asked for a humpback whale playing with a squid. i jokingly asked, “wrestling?” since whales & squid can be known to fight to the death (but that might be sperm whales?) he said yes to the wrestling picture, but after starting the picture, i thought hide & go seek would work better.

colorful, right? what’s up with me & all the color? i might be tapping into my more vibrant inner artist. i have this set of dr. ph. martin color inks that i have barely used after impulse buying them…and now i am getting some time to play with them.

i got the paper wet. dripped ink. let it dry. then i drew what i saw. then i added a little more ink. then one more inking just to be safe.

i like it. so vibrant. i keep thinking someone else did it.

oh, and here is misha’s inktober contribution. poppy’s contribution is all over the carpet. oops! supervision with the ink, mama. (at least it was my cheap ink & not my new ink)
