My 14th drawing for Inktober

For my fourteenth drawing I went with the Inktober prompt suggestion of Clocks. In today's piece cogs form the center parts of dandelion clocks.

Creating my drawing

The piece was created using black drawing ink, a dip pen, paintbrush and wax.

Small metal cogs were used to print the cog shapes, these were then finished by hand using my dip pen and black ink.

The dandelion seeds were added using a dip pen along with outlines on part of the leaves.

Then areas I wanted to keep unaltered had wax applied over the top, before applying more ink to the paper.

I then washed off any excess ink and allowed the drawing to dry. The final stage was to use a dip pen and drawing ink to draw in finer details and outlines.

Wow!!I imagine that image in a futuristic and dystopian story, @opheliafu. In which technology has replaced nature. The idea and the drawing were great! Congratulations

I liked the play between clocks with cogs, and dandelion clocks - blowing away the seeds to tell the time.
