A quick test piece using Robert Oster ink.Art: Evening Sapphire, Marine Blue, Graphite, Peach and Lipstick Red with bleach detailing. You really can utilise the chromatography to enhance the overall relationship between the coloured inks. The bright turquoise bleeding out of the Evening Sapphire is a match for the bright turquoise bleeding out of the Marine Blue which is also found in the Graphite. The visual colour relationship between the sea and the sky allows the image to work harmoniously. I could have used Barossa Grape and still got away with it, simply because of that chromatic commonality.

All tests on Bockingford 200lb watercolour paper using brushes and a Noodler’s Ahab for the ink work.
Just for the record – I do this for myself, I receive no remuneration what-so-ever and I tell it exactly how I see it.
