Everything about Woodstock looks a bit exaggerated, houses, streets, people, atmosphere. Every time you see something new, something you didn't notice last time.
I used Sepia ink and few Kuretake pens, and this time I used piston water brush, which feels like a real brush, with animal hair. Just have to add a bit of water by twisting barrel instead of squeezing. And if I put brush down water is seeping away.

Nikira, just have to say, gave you a shout out on my blog. My cousin is also now a fan of yours and we are both going crazy as to what supplies we can afford to purchase. While my true love is painting in oils and acrylics it's always great to learn something new. I thank you so much for sharing your talent.

All the best to you,

Oh, thank you very much Joan. I also use to paint in oil and I loved it, but than I start using acrylic and house paint on walls, experimenting with glazes and poly. I love good white primer and tints from paint stores, it is cheap and versatile.
I always loved ink, I think this is the closest to old faded photograph, when while you still enjoying the moment it is seeping away and become distant memory.
