Ruth Carll's picture

Pink Parasol

This is water soluble suminagashi ink in water. I use this ink because of the very reason these images sometimes get constructive criticism about focus. That is that the ink is dissolving rapidly into the water and therefore has a soft, ephemeral and surreal look. The inks are dropped in at different rates and through an oil barrier which provides some control. Then I flip the final image to be 'trees'. Enjoy!

Beautiful and evocative, Ruth. Love the cool tones here, and the soft, subtle shades in that "sky".

THIS is my favourite!!! Just stunning.

It's amazing the emotion something like this evokes!
