I am a fickle artist. If you asked me what my favourite item in my art toolkit was last week, it would have been raw canvas. This week I am on the alcohol ink band wagon. The colours are vibrant and luminous but I find myself quite often toning them down. It is interesting to just dab the ink on a ceramic tile or yupo paper and watch them move but to manipulate the ink is wonderful. I do this by cutting into the ink on the paper or tile with a brush dipped in alcohol. To protect my art, I spray it with a vanish. I find Kamar by Krylon to work best. Many vanishes will make the ink bleed and discolour. Come and see me dabbing on Monday, November 26, 2018.
