Day 7 & 8 #Inktober Challenge

Day 7

Pressed for time, I drew and painted “shy” platypus on day seven.  ‘Shy’ is the Inktober prompt for day seven.  I discovered platypus doing the 2016 Inktober Challenge and I’ve been drawing them ever since.  I do the outlines with a reed and a combined ink mixture of Indian and Quink inks.




I really like the cool effect created when the ink bleeds with the watercolour.  I wish this would happen with every platypus beak I paint!
