Art Techniques

Latest works

I’ve been doing yet another thirty in thirty challenge and admit to cheating on some days. When I create a painting I usually put it away for a while or stare at it on my wall for a few days before determining if it’s finished or not. Alcohol inks afford you the chance to add more inks or alcohol and change your painting or even start over. A couple of times in this challenge I’ve looked back at the paintings I created and decide to “up cycle” them. For example the pink floral in the selection below started as a pink and purple abstract but after a few days of looking at it (and running out of time to create my daily artwork) I took a straw and some Piñata Blanco Blanco ink and created flowers over the top. The inks are great because they absorb some of the colour from before and create delicately translucent petal effects.
