Gigi by sidneyeileen Gigi by sidneyeileen
6"x6" dip pen and wash on aquaboard
Ink: Sennelier Walnut Stain
Subject is Gigi, an adorable, elderly, stubby-legged mutt dog rescued by dear friends a number of years ago.

I took several photos of Gigi while I was dog-sitting over the holiday, and when I got home pulled them up on my computer. I first sketched the drawing in pencil, then inked it with a croquille dip pen. This was my first occasion using aquaboard, which took the ink very nicely. The next day I used a round brush to apply the same ink in a wash. Again, I was extremely happy with how the aquaboard took the media.
