Cocky Rooster

15x11 mixed media on 140 lb cold press Canson paper (watercolor, India ink) done last week after receiving instructions on Sketchbook Skool in the Expressing series.  Make a drawing on paper and trace that onto tracing paper.  Color in the shape on paper with watercolor and let dry.  Tape your traced line drawing on top.  Lift up and add small lines or dots of India ink, then immediately lay the tracing paper down over the image and press with your fingers to transfer ink onto the watercolor image.  A different look for sure and it was fun.  My paper had been used as a backing sheet under larger pieces, hence all the little marks of paint.  I had an old sketch so reversed it.
