This September, the Virtual Paintout travelled to Denmark , the island of Zealand. I managed to get back on board and participate. It was fun, as usual, and the town of Roskilde, where I "landed", is a gem. I kept the 6x6" Aquabord format (most of my other Virtual Paintouts are the same) and decided to try walnut ink with a special bamboo pen/brush that I got from Daniel Smith. Well, it turns out that the walnut ink is NOT waterproof (and I always learn about those things in the middle of working on a painting, not on a scrap). My usual process is to do the ink drawing first and then apply watercolor on top. In this case, I had to re-apply the ink on top of the dry watercolor - which I mostly don't mind, it gives the painting a bolder look. The bamboo pen feels a bit awkward and leaves blobs of ink if you are not careful, but it's probably just a matter of getting used to a new tool.
