Tinta china no soportable al agua y la ciudad.

El tipo de tinta que no soporta el agua es interesante. Las plumas Lamy ofrecen esa variedad de mancha y efecto que no puede ser generado por la tinta convencional de las microfichas. 
Probando tintas y plumas encontré una de esas plumas antiguas con puntas intercambiables. Abajo tienes un ejemplo de tinta china y agua. El desafío se encuentra en lograr controlar la mancha cuando aplicar el agua después de haber trazado gran parte del dibujo. Es todo un riesgo, pero entretenido. Personalmente me parece una buena forma de explorar la combinación de trazo preciso vs mancha incontrolable. Que te parece? Lo has probado?

"El dibujo es la expresión más espontánea y directa del artista - una especie de escritura. Revela su verdadera personalidad, más de lo que lo hace la pintura"
Edgar Degas

Anunciamos la inscripción al curso de verano 2015
Este es un taller multidisciplinario.
