Acrylic ink drawing

Some days I just like to try new things.  As of late I've been using my water brush to do line drawings and then filling in the painting  with watercolor.  Well I've taken it a step further.  I bought a couple of Zig Brush H20 and filled them with Daler Rowney FW acrylic artist ink.  This water brush is filled with indigo blue.  The tip of the water brush is probably a mini or small tip. 
On this painting I used the indigo to do the contour of the bull dog puppy and then took another water brush filled with burnt umber to give the puppy some detail and making him more three dimensional. 
I like the idea of not giving too much detail, but just a hint of shading.
 just a closer view of the detail.
