rice paper and acrylic ink

A Chinese friend kindly gave me some of her gorgeous Chinese rice paper (bought in China) to play with. She was doing a demo of how she combines Chinese and western art using rice paper and/or silk. So much valuable information.

Why on earth I chose a dark subject contre jour as the experiment I'm not sure .

I wanted to see what happens using acrylic ink with it, plus some fountain pen - it's not how she uses it but I wondered how I can use it in my way with the knowledge gained from her demo. More experimenting and practice needed to get the most out of it.

Really interesting how differently it behaves from cartridge or watercolour paper. This is the rice paper for detailed work - not the kind where it floods out. This gives time for moving paint around on the surface without it fllooding out. I only previously had a brief play years ago on the softer, blurrier paper (and not the same quality).

It's a fir cone from the garden in Wales, fallen from the hill above, that my grandson gave me.
