Day #10: Feeling Peachy Today

Inkvent Day #10: Diamine Peach Punch

I’m happy to see a few bright ink colors in this Diamine calendar. Peach Punch is a standard ink with some shading. To me, it’s truly a peachy color. I paired this ink with my Conklin All American in Sunburst Orange.

This is one happy color!

I was sorting through my swatch cards to see what I could find to compare this color to. Strawberry Shortcake was the closest color I had. Just for fun I pulled my FWP Definitely Peachy swatch because it had “peach” in the ink name.

Side note: You can see how light the FWP ink is. Their lighter colors do not work well with my pen & ink art techniques. Adding water to the ink on paper would dilute the color and make it lighter. The light color FWP inks might be better suited for painting directly onto paper.

So far, I’m finding all of the Diamine Inkvent colors are wonderful to use in my artwork. This bright color also creates a lovely ink wash.
