Fire Line

This is my latest ink painting. I just finished it and was reminded of a fire line aka firebreak. I see creeping rivers of fire held back by an open space, devoid of vegetation, while trees still stand in the background untouched.

I created this with various blue inks along with Sunset Orange, gold mixative and plenty of blending solution on Yupo. It never fails to fascinate me watching the inks move, expand and often produce amazing textures with little or no help from me. In fact, the less I 'help', the better the result.

Hello Billie:) This is why I like Yupo so much. Beautiful effects! And beautiful colors. It indeed looks like a fire line. I love it!
