STILL IN THE BLUES…..ORGANIC PEN AND INK

pen and ink, graphite, acrylic paint ……I love doing these smaller pieces. First I paint with acrylic and ink. It’s almost more about what you rub off than it is about what you have painted on. Then once dry you get to dive in and find the hidden worlds that lie beneath. A really nice effect is to use white acrylic, then an ink wash over it, then scrub excess off with paper towels and reveal a textural ground…..yummy stuff.
