drawing into the ink

25Mar11

With the past canvases shown, the ink was used as a watercolor. I have used oil pastels to draw over top of it. The ink was so rich and vibrant I decided to leave on some of the canvases the harsh blured spots the the ink made in contact with the water. With the oil pastels i scratched into the oil to pull the inked canvases to show through. With the figures i have also added ink onto the oil pastels. Because the pastels are so oily and the ink is so watery, I had troubles keeping the colored to stick onto the figures. I got out my summer fan and put it on low, and had some success from that.
