142. Inktober #23: Muddy

Beds of dried, caked and cracked mud are fascinating.  Footprints in them are even better, or the mysterious sliding rocks found in Death Valley.  I looked at a lot of pictures of mud flats, and one thing I noticed were curves and angles as well as the way light bounces off their slightly uneven surfaces.

Here I used ink and water, specifically Private Reserve’s Copper Burst.  I have never considered using fountain pen ink as a painting medium, but it’s opened up my eye to its potential.
