lost in color (continued)

I love the crinkles formed in tissue paper when it gets wet n painty.

and the rivulets of ink, dabbed in a semi-dry state, neatly outlining themselves and marking their dribbly paths
doodles run around inky tidemarks, colors blend and merge the disparate
layers piled high, paper takes on a feathery appearance, ruffled.
Not starting out with a ‘plan’ to how a page will take shape is liberating.
It’s not a piece of art it’s a page in a book.

It’s just for today. I offer no judgement.

Free to let the colors and shapes just happen.

  1. Today I went looking for coloured inks…what are you using or where can I locate them? I found fabric dyes…but am a loss for what to use for papers. I like your rich colours. Any help would be appreciated. Beautiful work! I love your blog!


    1. hi there, thanks for all your lovely comments. I used a mix of whatever came to hand in this project! but for real vibrant colors I use Procion dyes (meant for fabric, but also work great on paper) and Brusho, which comes in little tubs of dry powder ink.
      I’ll post something about this with a bit more info 🙂


  2. it’s liberating to just ‘do a page’ and not expect art – but art is certainly what happened here … wonderful colours and textures, and your descriptions are poetic =)


  3. Absolutely gorgeous color! I’m lovin’ drinking in these lovely, vibrant, fanciful pages of yours! Love the “no judgment” approach! And thanks for visiting my blog today! Pleased to “meet” you!
