Inks and a Bin Liner
Played around with ink and a plastic bag.
I started with the splashes of acrylic ink first thing in the morning. A couple of hours later I sketched the figure with my Lamy Safari fountain pen filled with red-black Noodler's ink. Then I used a water brush to blend some of my loose hatching for tone. Later that night I poured neat ink into a puddle on the page and covered it with a crushed plastic bin liner before closing the book, weighting it down and heading off to bed. This is what I woke to in the morning when I peeled off the bag. Fun!
