Did You See That?

Alcohol Inks lend themselves to one discovery after the other... 
 If we are present enough and still enough to catch their lightening fast flashes of inspiration.
 Joy In the Awareness.

Like this new sky technique that to me symbolizes the sun rays 
in these gorgeous mountain rimmed skies I now live under. 
 I love them. Can you tell?

How To Create Energetic Art

See These NEW, Energetic Little Dreamers 
Up Close And Completed At:

Techniques That Create Energetic Art

                                                            1. Use Color Opposites
                                                            2. Use Value Contrasts
                                                            3. Use Hard Edges
                                                            4. Use Diagonals

Is That All That's Needed?

No. The artist must feel energetic. 
Some of us can become too sedentary in our studios.
Remember to break away and move :)
Walking, connecting with the earth, is one way to energize.

I Like To Move it, Move it!

How To Create Serenity In Your Art

Dreamscape No. 180
Little Dreamer, 4x4
Alcohol Ink On Yupo
© June Rollins

Up For Auction At:

Create Serenity In Your Art With:

                       1. Cool, Analogous Colors -  Above, I used yellows, greens and blues
                       2. Dominant Horizontal Movement - Subtle in sky and bolder in lower horizon line
                       3. Areas Of Rest - The sky is a subdued neutral and takes up 66% of the composition
                       4. Slowed Rhythm - The water, almost still, has a slow undulating illusion

Is Technique All That's Needed?

No. There must first be serenity inside.

Whatever is inside eventually reveals itself in the art. While it's not often addressed, I believe this is one of the main contributing reasons some artists struggle and are not pleased with their work. 

Dreamscaping with alcohol inks especially reveals the inner nature. 
It also fosters a relaxed, flow state conducive to serenity.
