Ink blobs

My start into pen and ink was purely accidental. I was in Barmer, Rajasthan and frustrated with waiting for an oil painting to dry. I started scribbling with ink, added some ink blobs, smudged them around and voilà I had a wonderful painting.

I love the immediacy of the pen and inks, does not take too much time to do or dry. But it is a whole lot more difficult, as it is probably the least forgiving of all the mediums. As in, one mistake and its gone. Next to impossible to correct.

I start with a preliminary sketch and then start inking.

      Hi Margaret,
      I don’t retail out of any of those cities currently. Though you can buy directly from me. And I ship to you where ever you want. If that works for you then I could probably send you a few images of what I currently have available with me.

      I hope this helps…Do let me know.
