It’s October so it can only mean one thing – Inktober is here! (OK, bear with me, I’m sure October means many things to people besides a drawing challenge 😉)
If you have never heard of Inktober it is a drawing challenge, set up by a chap called Jake Parker, where you draw something every day (or as much as you can) in the month of October. There is an official prompt list that I am planning to follow but many people just draw whatever they wish and post of social media.
So jumping in with day 1 and the prompt word is ‘Ring’
I started with some papers that I had previously coloured with alcohol inks.
I then drew out my flowers and leaves directly onto the alcohol ink.
I cut the shapes out and decided where they were to go before sticking them down.
A few close up of the gold ink details from the alcohol ink. I also used a gold acrylic pain pen to add gold dots.
I hope you enjoyed day 1.
Are you doing inktober? If so, do you plan to do it everyday or just a few, are you sharing on social media? Let me know – I love to see how others approach these things.
