I got some wonderful Inktense blocks as a gift and was itching to use them, so I decided to use it for a beautiful photo my dad took when he was in Korea:
And here’s how it turned out!
It turned out slightly brighter than actual photograph, but I suppose that screams “Springtime!” in my mind. I also only learnt the laws of reflection after I did this painting, so the reflections aren’t that accurate. On the bright side, though, I absolutely love how ink cannot be disturbed after it dries, unlike watercolor. It makes it worse when you make a mistake, but it gives great layering. Here’s how it looked like in the drafting phase, before I added water:
The tree area looks better, as it is drier and has more texture, but the leaves look better when wet. I guess I’ll do a mix of both next time.
Overall, the Inktense blocks work amazingly!
