I had so much fun with the first ink and resist painting (the one of Mike and the cat) that I decided to try it again. This time I used white gouache to resist the ink and painted on a smaller piece of paper (11 x 16). I was able to do more detail using gouache, so decided to use a subject I've used a number of times, the Sheldon McMurphey Johnson House which is in Eugene.
After letting the gouache dry completely, I put black ink over the surface. I let that dry overnight and this is what I got after rinsing the painting completely.
I decided to paint portions of the framed area. Did I make the right call on leaving the sky white, or should it be painted?
