Mike Lyon..ink ink ink!

After my tutorials with Amelia and Anna, they both suggested experimenting using inks and dipping pens. I am excited to see what i can create using these different materials in fast 5 minute sketches compared to the longer laborious drawings. My first idea has been t research artists who use inks in their work to see the sorts of results i could aim for within my own pieces. Mike Lyon’s work shows the immense detail and concerntration that can be achieved through ink.
