The first class will be Mixed Media Play with INK, so I though I would share some of reasons I am so in love with ink.
No. 1: Even simple india ink, a bamboo skewer and copy paper can make something unexpected....
No. 3: Because ink is fluid, you can do amazing things on fabric:
|Acrylic ink and Walnut ink on raw canvas with a few pencil details added.|
No: 5: Drawing with ink is my all time favorite because it takes my control away.
Here is a progression of my recent painting. I used unstretched, gessoed canvas 24"x 30" and sewed pockets in the top and bottom to receive a dowel. This way it can be hung without expensive framing. I applied collage and texture to the surface and then drew my character with the dropper:
|Worked on the floor then lifted it for drips....|
|Mid painting process with just black and white paint and more ink.|
|Finished piece...I think!|
