Fluffy Parrot ~ xPost Abstract/Contemporary


11x9 alcohol inks on white 3/18" foamcore board done yesterday evening as a quickie since studio time was short. Only four colors of ink were used along with canned air to force ink to spread upwards and in streaks. The background is left white of the board and is not enhanced. Tulip stem is made with drops of ink on tip of a wooden chopstick to control it; I used two greens, Juniper and Lime. Flower bottom edges were smoothed using cotton swab tip dipped in 91% alcohol. No pre-drawing with inks
C&C welcome

Re: Fluffy Parrot ~ xPost Abstract/Contemporary

Thanks Bertoni!
A few tips: always put down lighter colors first. Spray or wet your support w/ alcohol 91% or blending solution before starting. All dries within seconds. To create lines blow air through a drinking straw or canned air immediately after putting ink drops down. Tilt support to encourage runs. Use a cotton tip swab applicator dipped in 91% to clean around edges. White or metallic inks IMO are not good to use. Good luck! Hope to see what you do
