Inktober - Day 1

Today is the first day of Inktober, the challenge to draw something every day in ink. It isn't too late to join in if you want to participate. Check out this link: Jake gives a list of prompts in case you need ideas, but I am just sketching what I find.

This morning I used a tiny bottle of ink (the color is Bordeaux) that came in a set with glass pens to sketch this. There are 6 different colors in the set, so maybe I will try them all.  I'm hoping to do a variety of different kinds of ink sketches this time.

Here is the set of inks and glass pens. The set belonged to a member of one of the art groups I belong to. When she passed away her children brought most of her art supplies to our group and asked the members to take anything they thought they might use. I knew that even if I didn't use this set I would probably sketch it. lol


  1. Cool set of inks, and a nice way to remember your friend! Looking forward to seeing these inks again as sketches!
