Sunflower vignette

15x11 acrylic inks on 140 lb cold pressed Canson paper, brush only-no pencil, done this afternoon.  It is my first time to use FW brand; I only bought 3 primaries plus black.  This medium is pigmented and lightfast as well as water resistant.  Pens, dip pens, or brushes can be used as well as airbrushes.  The look resembles watercolor in its appearance on paper being transparent and translucent.  I do think they are more vibrant than watercolor.  Definitely will use them again.  With just the primaries I was able to get a full range of hues.
