An entire sketchbook might be filled with drawings of these marvelous, old inkwells. (Sorry, Nan!)

Old, glass inkwells

At the demonstration last Thursday evening a man asked me what my favorite color scheme is. When I threw the die for this drawing and it came up indicating an Analogous Color Scheme, I realized I definitely have preferences when it comes to color schemes.  I prefer analogous with split complements and triads.  I enjoy playing with pure colors that give me a wide range of values.

Sketchbook drawing: drawn first with fountain pen filled with unknown ink of a yellow-brown nature, followed by watercolor.  Colors of the limited palette are yellow-green, green, green-blue, and slightly grayed green-blue.  Red-violet would have been more fun as a shadow color.
