This image above I think reflects the turning point in the ink drawings. For me, this sketch is the bridge between the straight India ink sketches and the ink drawings done with the Chinese ink. I didn’t realize it until yesterday, but I think the reason I’m responding to the Chinese ink drawings is because they combine the best components of the acrylic sketches and ink sketches. I remember thinking for a very brief moment after I had done both the acrylic and ink sketches that there were visual qualities of both that I really liked, and if there was only some way I could find the best of both worlds. The Chinese ink really gave me the ability to reproduce qualities of both mediums in one cohesive manner that was simple and straightforward.
