For Day 8 of my 12 Days of an Art Lover's Christmas, I present my ink studies focusing on purely abstract compositions. I created these mixed media artworks a few years ago when I first started using inks - calligraphy ink and liquid acrylic ink. With these artworks, or ink studies, I really wanted to master the flow of the inks. The differences between how the calligraphy ink and the liquid acrylic ink react with water and with the watercolour paper. I wanted to learn how the two inks react with each other and how to best use them to complement each other in my artworks. And I wanted to explore other subject matters that were more abstract and not purely representational. I wanted to explore patterns, and the combination of graphic black and white repeating patterns alongside more free flowing colourful flowing colours.
My abstract ink studies are purely abstract, can be displayed vertically or horizontally, and size A2 (59 cm x 42 cm) - they work particularly well in a standard 50 cm x 70 cm frame, and are particularly striking presented in multiples. They are only £49.95 each. To learn more, check out http://bit.ly/christmasday8 or my profile link. To learn about my 12 Days of the Art Lover's Christmas, see my previous posts.
