Ink All Over The Place

 

Improvisation -alcohol ink on Yupo paper

After my weekend course with alcohol inks, I spent another day playing with them – learning more about how they spread, their ability to mix, and their drying times. I had a few pieces from the course that I continued working on, finding inspiration in the shapes and backgrounds. I also started a few new ones.

Learnings:

1.Keep working on pieces because unlike watercolour, it takes a lot to get to the “muddy” stage.

2.Working with a brush to put in details works well, but wait until the piece has dried thoroughly.

3. Keep dried pieces between sheets of wax or tracing paper. They will stay sticky even when dry.

Enjoy my play – I sure did!
