Denim Smoke

May 3, 2019

An ink tree maybe? This is water soluble suminagashi ink in water. I use this ink because of the very reason these images sometimes get constructive criticism.
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!

Fantastic! The variety you get, Ruth! Gorgeous blues in this one. And the dynamism in those leaping shapes! It'd be great if you could do a series, to be seen as a group, somehow.
