Horses Progress #3 - Ink

Now the ink layers get done.

I have used a mix of brown and indigo, well watered so that the color below can show through.

I used an old brush for my ink works as accuracy means nothing with this process, just get it all on fast.

For your first few horses you may want to use less bright colors in the under layer, or just do them all as chestnuts and paint them light brown or a muddy yellow as the under color, so that when the ink goes on at this stage you can call the horses 'done'.

Time for this stage was 35 minutes, you can work very sloppy here, just get the ink over everything.
