Acrylic inks on w.c paper (Hannemuhle)sp? - never can remember it's spelling! .. but, it's a nice paper for the inks, especially if adding pen work.
Couldn't get the colours right via the scanner - the tree on the right has a much duller mix of purples/reds/blues, on here, the blue dominates!
7.5" x 11" and about 2 hours - don't think I'll do more.:)
Thanks for looking:)

WOW....this is so vibrant (the dominant blues look purple on my laptop) The limbs of the big trees are awesome! Love the inks. Have inks. Have yet to try them. Do I need more than 140lb Arches? Or should I use a hotpress paper?

Valri - this paper is 140 lbs too - I use an acrylic sheet/board instead of a wooden drawing board - soak the paper both sides so it stays flat without taping it. This particular one is quite smooth too, so you could use HP if you wish ........ if you don't want to use pen, a rough or CP is also good.

Oh my! ITS GORGEOUS!!. It looks like silk and I love it. It was your ink work that got me started with them years ago and now you make me want to dig them out again.

Absolutely I want to take a stroll down that gorgeous walkway. Bursting with beautiful color, exactly what we all need right now! Kudos to you Maureen, I could look at this all day.

This is just beautiful. I would love to see a work in progress of this. Beautiful vibrant colors and the addition of the pen work adds a crispness. Are acrylic inks like watercolors to use? or is it very different? I must read a bit about them.
