Reflections Along The Way

Inktober 2019

It is Inktober month. For those who are unfamiliar with what that is – an artist named Jake Parker created this ten years ago in 2009 as a challenge to improve his drawing skills. Since then, it has become a worldwide endeavor where thousands of artists take part in the challenge every year. I have done this for a couple of years previously but I drew random drawings.

This year I decided to follow the official prompt list provided for Inktober, and use birds as an inspiration for every prompt. I had to do quite a bit of research on birds and learned so much in the process. Most of these were drawn with watercolors. I used brush pens and white gel pens at times for highlighting. A couple of these were done digitally on my iPad.

These are the art supplies I used:

  • King Art Dual Tip Brush Pens
  • White Sakura Gelly Roll Pens
  • Pentel Brush Pen
  • Copic Drawing Pen
