I have been using an ink grinder and an ink stick to grind my own ink. Lots and lots of joy....... and much fun!!!!!!! It actually works better than the normal waterproof india ink on the water color paper. Plus I can get some great variety in tone.
Stephen Haws illustration I love traditional mediums. Inking, sketching, drawing and painting are my specialties. I am the happiest when I can smell paint, smear charcoal everywhere, and when......... ink gets all over my pants.
