Alcohol Ink, Pen Ink & Gouache on Paper.
This project was an exercise in ink mixing and application. The alcohol ink (colour) was mixed with water, each colour had it’s own container and eye dropper. I dropped, threw and blew the alcohol ink over top of my pen ink drawing (black). I finished the pieces off with thin white lines of Gouache, to pull the images back out from the alcohol ink.
The frames were a project entirely on their own. With help from my father we custom built these pine frames, finished in white and finally distressed.
