Back to the brush

I've been hankering after doing some 'proper' slapdash painting with watery inks and pencils. Don't get me wrong, I love my mac but there's nothing like the splash of paint on paper, especially if you haven't quite worked out what you are doing. I've been looking at the old covers from the Madeline books which are just a great mixture of loose ink drawing, bold colour and great drawing.
Despite all this, I couldn't help scanning in and playing with the colour digitally over the top of the painting. Maybe there's no hope for me?

Do you mean you still fiddled to adjust the inks digitally? Well, what's wrong with that!
You can have the best of both worlds... real ink and paint, and a touch of digital magic :o)

I agree. The best of both worlds. Lovely artwork.
