Everyday Matters Challenge # 2: A Lamp
it's taken me all week to get this up, but it's been waiting in the ranks since sunday. i really have been trying to draw more this week than last. i've come to the realization that part of this has to do with my reading memoirs of a geisha all last week. so now that that's done, it's back to the drawing.
i used one of my favorite fountain pens for this drawing and then played with adding water. that ink really is quite water soluble! it was fun getting to be a little messy. it was also fun to see how the ink seperated into its seperate components of color. (good old dye chromatography!)
