Back to the Inks
I'm back to my alcohol inks and trying a few new techniques. I met June Rollins on Facebook through Wendy Videlock and joined June's AI group on the site. When I saw June's blog (link) I realized that I had seen her work before. She creates the most amazing land and seascapes with alcohol ink on Yupo. June calls them her 'Dreamscapes'. I ordered her DVD and was inspired to start working with more of the Ranger metallic mixatives along with a few new ink colors such as Terra Cotta and Denim.
This particular painting was done with Twilight Purple, Eggplant, Terra Cotta and Ranger's gold mixative. I created the crescent moon with the help of a plumbing and house planning template (link) and a little 70% alcohol on a Q-tip.
