Inktober 2017 – Day 3: Poison


Sorry this one is late, I got in late from work. I would have liked to have spent longer on it but didn’t want to dedicate longer than my train ride home to finish it.

I interpreted “poison” quite loosely. I want to do a nature themed Inktober, so I thought about poison in terms of pollution. It’s a little on the nose to do a picture of the sea, but you don’t have lots of time for conceptual analysis during a daily drawing challenge! 

I wish I hadn’t added the darker purple, but I’m glad I used more fine line work and none of the darkest purple. I’m glad I decided to limit the colour pallete and materials, it makes it much easier to complete something each day (well, so far).

P.S: sorry for the bad lighting, it’s dark here so natural lighting wasn’t an option.

  1. Wow I really like it. How long is your train ride home?
    Nature is something I’ve been meaning to practice but every time I sit in front of a tree it just looks like a 5-year-olds drawing… So frustrating!


    1. My train ride is about 15/20 minutes depending on how early I am to it, and how long I spend sitting there. I know exactly what you mean! I keep meaning to get up super early and make the most of the light before everyone wakes up, but my bed is sooooo much warmer.
