An entire sketchbook might be filled with drawings of these marvelous, old inkwells. (Sorry, Nan!)
At the demonstration last Thursday evening a man asked me what my favorite color scheme is. When I threw the die for this drawing and it came up indicating an Analogous Color Scheme, I realized I definitely have preferences when it comes to color schemes. I prefer analogous with split complements and triads. I enjoy playing with pure colors that give me a wide range of values.
Sketchbook drawing: drawn first with fountain pen filled with unknown ink of a yellow-brown nature, followed by watercolor. Colors of the limited palette are yellow-green, green, green-blue, and slightly grayed green-blue. Red-violet would have been more fun as a shadow color.
