acrylic ink
13″ x 10″

This is an acrylic ink piece I did as a study for something larger that I am working on for Gallery Nucleus (more on that later). The acrylic inks perform beautifully on this really heavy Arches watercolor paper (300lb coldpress). I kept this piece to very limited palette. It felt good to loosen up after a couple of weeks working on silverpoint and cross hatching.

This is another acrylic ink vignette. I love the rich green in this one. This piece is actually inspired by my dog Molly (a golden retriever) who likes to lie in my studio like this. I re-imagined her as a mysterious mythological creature resting on the forest floor.

Please note that this work is sold.

This is a acrylic ink vignette called Red Coral Trilobite. Acrylic inks act similar to watercolour on the page and the colours are beautifully vivid. I’m using this piece to reactivate my Etsy account.
