8x10 alcohol inks on paper done today, another imaginary bearded man to go with the first one posted two days ago, Blackbeard.  This ugly fellow's ear was the beginning shape I used after putting Burro Brown, Ginger, Yellow, and Havana Brown down then blowing with canned air.  Cotton swabs dipped in 91% alcohol were used along with a chopstick for removal and making lines.  Mantilla black and Ginger make up his beard while Tangerine highlights the nose.  A new light blue ink was put around the eyes and top of ear.
