Keeping it Simple

imageI’m a member of quite a few Facebook groups dedicated to alcohol ink artists and am so in awe of some of the art they produce. Most artists love the way the inks move and merge and react to each other to create fabulous abstract pieces, others paint to create simple pieces that are full of vibrant colours but others take it that step further to incorporate alcohol ink pens like Copic and Spectrum to create absolute masterpieces. Just google alcohol ink paintings or check out Pinterest and you’ll see what I mean.

I prefer to keep it simple although I have dabbled with pens too in creating more realistic paintings. When I actually find some time to do some larger realistic paintings I’ll post them here. The beauty is when you are working small the painting and inks are very portable so you can work anywhere. As they dry so quickly you can always be creative during a quick break. Now it’s cooler in Texas I can even work outside early in the morning or during my lunch break.
