Beaquoy inks by saganich Beaquoy inks by saganich
Inks for this baby, from nearly 4 yrs ago:
Beaquoy Farm Project - a commission by saganich
plus the background layer of watercolours.
Came across the file by accident, I had no idea I took a photo of this stage :)

Gotta say - I consider the finished piece to be one of my finest moments.
It took literally everything I knew to reconstruct the place so faithfully , just from a satellite image and a bunch of ground-level photos.
One of those occasions where you're busting your ass and your brain is overheating due to countless things to pay attention to, but nobody needs to tell you that you're doing a good job.
Because you damn well know it. :#1:

Thankya :thanks:

Not inks, actually - it's a print. :)
Whenever I have something complex that's intended for (water)colouring (complex meaning: many possible mistakes in the process), I usually do pencils+inks on the side, mostly on plain copy paper (or on something heavier only when a dip pen or a lot of ink are involved), scan it in monochrome, remove all smudges and blots,  and print it on Bristol Board or something similarly adequate, that can absorb a lot of liquid from watercolours.......and then colour over that.
Original inks usually have countless touch-ups with correction fluid, and in the final watercolour image, each such blot would stand out like a punch in the eye, since those areas become non-absorbent.

This is A2 size, so I couldn't do it at home, had to take it to a print shop.

Stupid method, but it (kinda) works :)
