Love how inks bleed and spread to tell their own story… to form a picture of vibrant personality for me to marvel at and pull forth that which is hidden within myself.
This is done with inks in automatic mode and tinkered with on ACDSee for Pentax.
I have played a little with alcohol inks on yupo paper, which is actually a plastic. You use lots of thinner to play the magic. To some extent it is automatic mode as well using gravity…I love the colors and the bleeding edges of the darks. BTW, I’m not British, so my meaning may differ… ;)Cheers mate… That slang should confuse the linguistic picture.
yes, I get some unusual effects after consuming much alcohol… Jackson Pollock being my greatest inspiration… and I think your English is well understood… hehe. I have tried the alcohol inks in the past. When I was working for a plastics firm they had inks there for printing, but the thinners affected me with nausea and headaches. They have a smoother flow than the water based ones. Thanks, mate…
oh so good to see you sharing your art, wonderful…love the colors:)
Again, Robin, thanks so much. I have always expressed to you how I would one day clean out my shed and get back to some painting. Part of the reason for doing that has been your fine work over the years… so a big thank you for your sharing nature and your encouraging words. Hugs. xoxo
Comes from within, the flow yes, love your colours Cos oxo
Many thanks, Del… love your colours too. xoxo
I see oceans and mountains and skies and sun reflections in this awesome piece Cos. Much life flows through you my friend. Thank you for this.
… as it flows through you MrRhee… greatly appreciated, mate.
So you be a writer, poet, carpenter, artist, tinkering all in the one..And a rather wonderful creative soul.The colours fight to make their presence known but there is no quarrel to this view….they blend wonderfully here :O))
