Inktober Part № 2

The next set of drawings for the Inktober Challenge. My goal is to do something creative with ink every day in October.

5x8" moleskine, brush pen and gouache. At the mid-point this mandala wasn't looking all that wonderful and I almost scrapped it {and I rarely scrap anything!} so I just went a little bonkers adding freeform shapes and after painting it looks pretty groovy. 

3x5" moleskine, J. Herbin ink plus water. First attempt with an oblique holder!

3x5" moleskine, gouache as a base, then mandala drawn with a kuretake brush pen.
