Ink Wash on illustration board - Original Size: 16” x 20” - 1979-Personal Collection.
This illustration came during my tenure as a classroom instructor, teaching illustration and graphic design. It was created to show the use of negative and positive space as well as the technique of applying ink and water with the use of a brush to a surface. This painting technique, known as “ink wash,” allows for subtle changes made by adding less or more water with India ink to portray the final image. Navajos, recognized culturally by their jewelry and turquoise, are added with the facial images of these “3.”
