Hello dear people from Mitra!
I have a question about mixing materials.
I have asked already about compatibily of indian ink and gouache, and i know it is compatible and mixable, since i had answers from good people from your forum and i saw many old master artworks that were made precisely with these two techniques.
What worries me is, that i have used Indian Ink pitt pen and i did full ink drawing, with deep crosshathing and deep darks, so i did a lot lines with it.
This was done on thick watercolor paper.
And i really wasnt happy with the end result, but saw the potential in the work, so i reworked or painted over the whole drawing with artists quality gouache (using black and white only).
The works looks good now, but i am intersted is it ok that i did this?Will my work be ok?
And if there are no mistakes visible now, and the work is one week old, does that mean that everything will be ok in future?

Since the Pitt pen is advertised as containing waterproof ink
so there should be no issues of bleed through. This means that the ink is
likely bound with a shellac soap. My only worry is that if you had large
regions of glossy ink, the gouache may not have a mechanical hold to the ink
and could possibly flake later on. If the ink strokes are not glossy then you
are probably fine.
