The Graveyard

I have been working on a poured painting of a graveyard for rusty vintage trucks.  I finished the drawing yesterday, and prepared the acrylic ink and poured the colors today using the inks.  The painting is in the very early stages.  I love the way acrylic inks mix and blend when they are poured on wet watercolor paper.  I am using 140 lb. cold-pressed Acquerello watercolor paper,and mixtures of Dr. Ph. Martin's Bombay India Ink, and Liquitex acrylic ink.  This is a full sheet of watercolor paper - 22" x 30".

Those intense colors just sing on the page, already!

Thanks, Rhonda! It is good to be pouring again - I sort of took a break!
