Ink Spray Technique Adds TextureJune 16, 2011
I decided to slightly alter the drawing shown in the previous post by adding some texture to the background. The technique used is the old ink spray made with a toothbrush dipped in ink.
I roughly masked out the figure and half of the background, and then drug the metal palette knife across the toothbrush to create a spray of ink. I then lightly blotted the spray marks with a paper towel and touched up the edges along the figure with a small brush. I think this texture helps separate the figure more from the wall and ground, making a more interesting drawing.
