Tried a little something different today using alcohol inks. In the past (a ways back) I've used them to color metal and make cardboard look like metal. And we've all made the usual blotchy or smooshed backgrounds with them. I've never tried painting a scene with them. You have to move fast when using a.i. and I'm not moving as fast as I needed too. So below is a pic of my experiments.
Painted on glossy photo paper, a plain sanded canvas, canvas with a good layer of heavy gel medium (used a painting knife) and lastly, a canvas with good layer of gesso on it. I wanted to see how a.i. would work on canvas with having to spray it with something first. A.I. worked on all the surfaces of the canvas. Not so much on the photo paper, I wasn't fast enough for that one. And by the time I got to it, about 20 minutes, I was having trouble breathing because of the smell from the alcohol! Forgot how bad that was and it really affected me this time. So this is the last time I'll use a.i.
Remember, these were an experiment...
