Bright Ink

acrylic ink

wet in wet - acrylic ink

There's something quite therapeutic about swirling pigment around a watery parchment...

No set rules to follow - it evolves naturally and takes on an abstract quality.
I'm amazed how the tiniest drop of coloured ink can expand from deep intensity to bright and even flow of colour. The real excitement for me is when another colour is added and given a slight guiding stroke or three with the tip of my paintbrush - then watching how it all evolves...

Using the three primary colours - this is the result.

I'm having fun with ink and water at the moment - building up to gaining confidence to tackle a large watercolour landscape.
