Stray in India Ink

I've never used India Ink before but I love the look of ink washes, so I thought, why not give it a go.  I was a little heavy handed with the shadow on the little girl, but I like the way her hair turned out.  I'm sure given time, I'll start to get the hang of it.

If anyone has any advice about the application of India Ink washes, I'm all ears!

"Mom, can we keep her? Please!!"

The other day I found some very old pen and wash sketches I did at school! I seem to have been quite good at it 50 years ago - but sadly, I've completely forgotten how I did it! Sorry!

But what you've done looks pretty good to me - maybe it's something you'll 'get' the more you do it?
