I’ve been playing with acrylic ink. Who knew? The difference, I’m guessing, is that regular ink is transparent and the acrylic is opaque and a little thick. The result is that I can use a fine tip pen (the dipping kind) over an existing watercolor.
…but I think I want to add three dimensional pearls to this somehow….a string of pearls or maybe just randomly placed. I’ve been sewing on canvas, perhaps I should sew some pearls on this…? I’ll publish the embroidery painting in a few minutes.
So much fun!! I wish I had more time to devote to it. I’ve been struggling for decades with letting go of preconceived ideas of shape and form. Now I want to have just a minimal suggestion of those things and that for me is the hard part. This one feels a little like cave painting… I really like how it turned out.
