Study in Tranquility

100_3320 This painting is 14×11. It is a collage with acrylic inks. I felt very peaceful doing this small painting contrary to my usual mode of working. I love working with acrylic inks and had not work with the media in a while.I worked wet, my favorite technique, doing wet washes. The piece came together adhering washi papers, or Japanese papers which I recently bought.I am happy with the results. Enjoy it.

    adore adore adore this and i too love the japanese papers. i bought a lot of mulberry paper but haven’t used it and some others i cannot remember their names right now…i’ve got some virus or other so ugh.

    anyway what are acrylic inks? is that the same as alcohol inks? i am curious. i almost bought some alcohol inks but then read somewhere they weren’t archival or color-fast so thought not since they were pricey. this is a beautiful composition with lovely colors all blending together. yummy. xox

    beautiful. I did a series of paintings using bottles of watercolor on mulberry paper. You may want to try it. You get gorgeous effets lie your all time favorite.I also used melted wax – batik , It first stuck to everything but if you raise the paper from the table or floor it works. You can see the results under my paintings from China category I think

      Hi, thanks again for the comment and notes. I have batik as my next learning technique. I have a friend that uses wax with her Japanese paper, but I am reluctant to use the wax as I am allergic to so much.I will look at your China paintings. I am sure they are very interesting and beautiful. I need to get mulberry paper, too and try it. I like the photo of you that you use to identify your blog. Very attractive. Silvia
