For the pen and ink assignment, I was experimenting on how different brush stokes has the ability to create texture. However, the challenge for me was when I wanted to create depth. The use of black ink with brush is very different from using pencil as pencil gives you control over how dark and light you want the tonality of greys to be  and with ink- its the same unless you mix it with water.

Hence, I realized that if I want to create any scenery that requires depth using black ink, I had to start with painting the background first, kind of like painting in watercolor.

Below is a practice that I did during my free time -experimenting on  how to use ink to create more depth.
