Inktober 2018 – Day #2


Inktober Day 2 – Rainy Day Reading Nook

The official prompt for today was “Tranquil”…and what’s more tranquil than curling up with a warm blanket and pillows to watch (and listen to) a thunderstorm!?

I absolutely love rain and rainy weather. That’s where I find my tranquility, so I wanted to bring that mood in with this piece. Also, mountains, because who doesn’t like a mountain view!? (especially when it comes with a nice little lake as well!)

I loved how the little nook sofa turned out, especially with the accent pillows and the blanket! While the sketch is all traditional in ink, I ended up scanning the piece and added some digital ink wash to create the lighter grey tones. I was unsure about how it would turn out but I’m pretty pleased with the result! (And now I actually want it to rain where I live so I can hear that sweet rainy sound….)

Do you like rainy days and thunderstorms?

See you tomorrow for Day 3!

Peace ^.^
