Questions for my nice commenting people!

mo: Any idea if watercolor would work over (dry) ink and ink wash? Seems to me it should but what do I know.

vw: How'd the ol' "Berkeley" work out for you?

It'll work over dry ink and wash, but my advice would be to do your color work with all watercolor... well, minus the solid blacks, anyway. That way, the color isn't obscured by a gray layer beneath.

The table worked fine. It was a gift from a beautiful fellow artist who got it for her bithday. Since she was a painter, she gave it to me.

*sniff* I sure miss those gay old Bohemian days. Long gone by, sadly. :(

Yes, forget the ink wash, the water colour becomes your wash, and make sure the ink is water proof. I use Pigma Micron pens with cheapo water colours.
So where's Selenis taking this dude?

vw: Yeah, aside from the financial (in)stability aspect, I gotta admit this Bohemian thing does have its fun side. :)

mo: The destination shall be revealed in the next page!


As for color, as I sort of rambled on about in a follow-up note on the last page (similar to this one, which probably means nobody is reading this one, either :D), I think before trying full-on color I'd be far more likely to attempt a limited type of color, ie a thin wash of color over particular areas for effect--so that's why I was wondering about it over the ink wash.

And come to think of it I think I also spotted some little dishes of various colored inks (dry, so you have to work into them with a wet brush) at the art supply store--Japanese or Chinese, I think they were. So those might be something I'd try, too.

Good to know the combination of materials won't burst into flame or something, though. It's nice to have a couple experts to consult. <3

That's a good idea. You might try thematic color, hot/cold color for tone. Blue, yellow, red... you get the idea. Get Piccaso with it! ;)
