Don't work hard at this...

Ever hear the saying.... "Never try to teach a pig to sing.... It wastes your time and annoys the pig!?!" That to say... don't try to do the impossible! So many times painters will try to create a perfectly smooth even fill background. It's not only near impossible with a strong ink application... it looks better ( to my eye anyway) if the fill is somewhat irregular. So here I'm applying a second layer of background fill using almost a cross hatch technique.... a few overlapping strokes in one direction.. then another and another til you are happy with the result.
