Shrimp February 1, 2018 First, I drew the shrimp with a fine ink pen and laid in a background of water-soluble graphite. Next, I added india ink with a watercolor brush to reinforce some of the contours. The fun and messy part was adding some ink drops and spatters. Lots of experimenting! Finally, I added some light pastel markings along the shrimp's shell and blended them together.
