an extra layer of colour

This was a bit of an experiment. I printed the Goldfinches onto a more textured paper (Hahnemuhle) than the smooth white Zerkall printing paper that I usually use to give a more open and less densely inked finish. I then hand-tinted the beech and hawthorn leaves and branches with Rohrer & Klingner antique drawing ink in Ginster, Payne's Grey and Astoria Brown. A very relaxing painting exercise.  


  1. They are lovely, I adore goldfinches :)

  2. Beautiful... and I love the technical details - I have a thing about paint and ink names, I don't know why.
