This will be my last alcohol ink painting for awhile, probably until Spring. The alcohol has begun affecting my throat and I fear it will also affect my lungs if I continue. Winter is not a good time for me to be working with strong fumes w/o proper ventilation and opening a window in the weather we're experiencing right now wouldn't be prudent. I will be picking up my watercolor brushes again and I have a few references that I've been anxious to get started on. Still, I will miss working with the inks. They are just so darn addictive.
