Sketchbook: Rainy Archways

Indian Ink in A4 Sketchbook

I created this piece in one of my sketchbooks a while ago of the inside of a ruined cathedral. I really liked the drama of the place, this great gothic ruin in the rain, forming huge puddles in the middle of the stone floor.
I used some Indian ink, beginning with a light wash and working some darker tones into it while it was still wet. This let some of the tones bleed into each other. I quite like the effect, all the elements working together to create quite a simple but likeable piece of art.
