Ink Dropper Faces - Vintage Ladies







 I looked online for vintage ladies to draw this set of ink dropper sketches. Their elaborate hairstlyles and accessories are so fun to draw! This method of drawing can be challenging because it is hard to control what happens with the blobs of ink in the process. There are elements in each drawing that I'm happy with, and other areas that I like less, but I do love the dramatic quality of ink.

    1. Thank you so much for your comments. I should have included in my post that this technique comes from Carla Sonheim.
