Birthday Hollyhocks


15x11 acrylic inks on Fabriano 140 lb cold press paper done yesterday over pencil drawing of red hollyhocks. Since I make sure to paint a complete painting on my birthday each year this one won the challenge. I used FW acrylic ink by Daler Rowney in a limited palette of red, yellow, and blue mixing them to obtain secondary colors, lights and darks. This resembles watercolor but is harder to manage and is quite shiny when dry. I really did not know where to post these inks so landed here
C&C welcome

Kay, another lovely and colorful painting of your birthday flowers. Haven't tried the acrylic inks but they sure look so shiny.

Re: Birthday Hollyhocks

Really nice Kay - how do you find time on your birthday huh?

This is probably my favourite medium and as they're acrylics you can also post there!

Re: Birthday Hollyhocks

Your painting seals the deal ... my next order to Jerrysartarama will include acrylic inks! Lovely, loose work!

Re: Birthday Hollyhocks

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes!
I did go back into it and strengthen values where the top two blooms meet as they were the same and it needed separation of shape. Here is the revised version:


Hopefully it reads better now.
Linda, I only got the three primaries and black but may order more now that I'm used to them and how they behave.
