Joyous Junco

9.75x6.75 alcohol inks on white foamcore lightly sketched in pencil first done today.  I've used the neutral inks such as Shadow Gray, White, Burro Brown, and black on the bird's body.  Greenery is Willow and Rainforest along with Ginger.  White snow is seen as the white of the substrate/support.

I mentioned on facebook that I really like this painting...
but wondered if you used a brush on this ... and if so,
how did you keep the brush from being destroyed !
Thanks for your inspiration and the joy of seeing your paintings.

Siggy, I thought I commented on your question but maybe not. Thanks for the kudos! No brush used. I do like to use cotton tip applicators dipped in 91% alcohol to clean around edges.
