Me again...with the ol' alcohol inks...I know...I can hear the yawns from here ...lol.
I've 'attempted' landscapes, oceans and fiery red skies this week so today I thought I'd go all cosmic and try a galaxy.
This is 4.5"x4.5" piece ogf 200gsm Yupo and I used Pitch Black, Silver, Snow Cap & Slate.
I wish I had some kind of video device to show you how I made this, & all of my other inkings, just to prove how what often looks like a complete disaster one minute is really worth putting aside and returning to and carrying on with later. I started with a sloosh of blending solution all over the paper and then randomly drizzled the inks, sometimes tipping the paper, sometimes puffing the inks about. The Snow Cap & Silver appear to fizz as they move about. If I wasn't happy with a certain section, I either added more ink or more blending solution.
Pitch Black actually has pinky / purpley hues to it as it bleeds into the blending solution.
If you are having a go with alcohol inks on Yupo and you think all you're creating is a mess then I beg you not to throw it away. Walk away, let it dry, come back and add more ink, more blending solution, puff, dab, sprinkle. I'm sure you'll find something amazing will suddenly emerge.
