Going through the lessons in Sandy Sandy‘s FUNdamentals of Alcohol Ink E-course. Still don’t have a decent hummingbird. Lesson worth repeating. Decided to try working the inks like I do watercolors. Hoping that familiar techniques will make the new medium feel familiar as well.
I thought these were a hot mess, but looking again this morning I see some redeeming areas. I can still go back in and rework each of these. That will be a lesson in itself.
I have a limited palette, but the background below is a mix from cleaning my brush. More lesson learning. In both pieces, the majority of the color was applied straight from the bottle. I moved the paint with a brush in the dark blue above, and the backgrounds. There is brush work in the center below as well.
I’m an introvert… I love being by myself,
love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs
and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky.
Happy creating to you!
