Birds On Hand

April through June, I've committed to working in oils. My April subject is birds.

Here's a peek at my Birds On Hand Collection now being put up for DPW Auction. Thanks for looking.

Primary Triad Variety

For a creative challenge I decided to see how many varied Dreamscapes could be created with just 3 ink colors.

Here they are. When I study them I see what I was looking for: warm and cool yellows, reds and blues and a host of neutrals ranging from light to dark in value.
How did I get so much variance?
  • Color Mixing
  • Adding 91% Alcohol or Blending Solution
  • Mixatives: Silver, Gold, Copper, Pearl, Snow Cap

These were my primary triad workhorses.
If you haven't tried Alcohol Ink Dreamscaping, you may want to give it a go. It's fun, relaxing and spurs experimental explorations. Learn more in the Dreamscaping Shop.
Happy, Creative Pursuits To All!
