Ink and Wash - Dandelion and Eggs

What a combination.......right? 

Today I was in the mood to do some ink and wash.  I don't know what it is about this technique that is so intriguing to me but I love it.  Although I have several colors (at least in the Tombow Markers), I prefer the black for some reason and I'm one who loves color.  

This first was done with a Rotring Art Pen in my Dowler Rowney sketch book.  The lighter leaf was done first with me pulling color with the waterbrush first along the outer edges of the leaf.  Then I pulled some of the pigment from the center lines making up the main vein.

I worked the bud next and then thought I'd add the darker leaf.  

The eggs were done using the black Tombow Marker.  This time you can see some of the pink and blue tint that I find happens now and then with the black marker.  The scan doesn't do it justice and not sure if you can see the colors in with the black.  I think the blue is more apparent and it shows more in the egg closest to the viewer.
