Lately I’ve been working with Japanese ink, experimenting with it’s predictably unpredictable character. I’ve been doing a lot of “wet on wet” onto which I sometimes sprinkle salt for the fractal effect. It’s a tricky game, and it’s one where I enter with the attitude that control is an illusion. I find that liberating. The picture I end up with is never the one that is intended. It’s a collaboration with the Universe.
Here is work in progress, showing the layering technique that I’m currently experimenting with.
I’ve started painting again. Been working in acrylic with glazing medium.
