Lynn, Patrick. Ginger, Sue, Karen, Harry, Ann, Robert, Matthew,
Thank you for your appreciation . Your words will encourage me to do better .
Robert I apply a layer of blank ink over the white board and then scratch . Fiberglass brush works better when done this way . The ink layer on Ampersand board is bit tougher to scratch with FG brush .

THanks Venkat so the black ink is it Ampaersand ink or normal chineese ink?

Robert, I find Ampersand black ink more suitable . The problem is it is available in a set with other colours . I believe that one can order a set , all black , from Ampersand

Your work is always so expressive, this one is no exception. The expression says it all, so reflective.
