I want to use Indian ink to create some interesting brushed letterforms for my poster. Creating a page of mark making allowed me to experimented with different brush styles, flow of ink and just allow me to get to grips with how the ink acts. Making different sized strokes, letterforms and allowing the ink to run out to create a dry brushed effect were all things I tried. I used standard paint brushes of different sizes, pieces of cardboard straight and rolled up. This was definitely useful exercise to do before going into creating whole words with this technique.
