adventures in sumi

April Inslee Inslee By Design monthly resolution sumi ink The Sketch Book

its time for another monthly resolution: trying new things. last month my resolution was to find a breakfast plan to live by. I was really in a place of perfecting sameness last month and getting into a routine. And sometimes I get worried that my predisposition to routine living spills over into how i approach my art. So this month my resolution is going to be about letting go a bit. routines and art don't necessarily go together. sometimes the best artistic moments happen when you step out of your comfort zone and let go. First step is trying a new medium - Sumi ink. I just got a little pot of it yesterday and I'm hooked. It is so dense and rich and dries quickly and imperfectly which creates such interesting variations which you can see in the woman above. it makes me want to start working BIG.
