Hatching Patchwork

Hatching Patchwork - student project

I spent a very enjoyable afternoon with my favourite nib and a bottle of ink exploring these little squares. It was super relaxing and I found it really cool how many patterns you can create with a couple of lines. Its always nice to do a bit of pure ink work! Some are made up of 2 lines, some of 3.

I treated myself to some new, coloured inks this week and thought this exercise would be ideal to get to know them and the results are just sooooo pretty!!! Especially when you use the lighter colours second as some of them bleed into each other.
