'The Meek' 2009 by StPeteArtisan 'The Meek' 2009 by StPeteArtisan
Featured in Inspired Watercolors 10/9/10 [link]

8"x10" on 9"x12" Dr. Ph. Martin's Ink (bottles) with brush one of the earliest forms of illustration circa 1934...in tricolor. Black,brown and white. No Graphite.
Please.. this ink is permanent the moment you brush it on..it can not be lifted like regular watercolor. Be kind.
During this time I am working on the Theatre pieces. 2nd in the series. My dear and very talented friend :iconthehumanform: has been kind enough to allow me to illustrate his works for my charity mission. There will be a series of at least 6. (All painted the same). For the Theatre pieces there will be eight 18"x24" oil on canvas. I will be uploading those as well. Let's see how this goes.
My best to you always!... J.Michael

Beautiful work. I had friends in the watercolor studio that used to use this type of ink from time to time. As I've heard it's indeed very tricky! Looks great though. I love the soft neutral color palette.

Ohhh thank you ...you are so kind. Yes I am hoping to lead a track even from digital that anyone can get started with and play. I have only been painting seriously for 4 years and all but a couple of pieces are in my gallery here. My whole life is here artistically.Thank you I will continue to enjoy your work. Monochrome painting/ink wash will force a very unique brush style for everyone.Have a great day! J.Michael

I am so happy you liked this one. I believe I will be painting off of deviantART entirely now. It will be important for me for publishing rights. No better place anyway. Have a great Sunday my dear friend! :painter:

I love this, I understand what you mean when every brush stoke counts with the ink. That stuff never comes out of clothes either :/. Did you use water color for the brown?

It is all Dr.Ph.Martin's Bombay in black, brown and white. None of which is re-workable. This is also pure brushwork and no graphite. Thank you for your kind words. Have a great weekend! :painter:

Thank you. This was a difficult piece for some reason. I was so attentive to the hands, that the rest got away from me.I often feel my brush is led at times.In less than one second this medium is permanent. The white will not cover completely for me. I could add another medium but I prefer my art pure.Thank you so much for the honor to paint your photos. It would be too much fun to hang with you and snap photos...haha Have a great weekend! J.Michael
