ALCOHOL INKS
Liquid Visions
~
Alcohol inks have been made popular lately by 
Dreamscaping With June Rollins® at junerollins.com
Please refer to her amazing DVDs for details about how to do this process. 



My Alcohol Inks are my 
Liquid Visions. 
I am a plein air painter at heart, 
so many of my paintings in ink are of landscapes, 
but they go beyond rolling hills, 
deeper than ocean depths, and stream straight into your heart. 
Share the vision with me! Enjoy!


In this first video, below, "LIQUID VISIONS - creating waves," I am using a coffee stirrer which is a very tiny straw, to blow the inks in a diagonal direction to create wave-like ink marks. The video is 6 minutes long. That is the rewarding part of painting with these small inks! In 6 minutes a gorgeous abstract has been created, and only one more step (spraying with a protective coating of Kamar) and I'm ready to mat and frame!

In this second LIQUID VISIONS video, I am pouring the inks.

WATERCOLOR ON YUPO
~
The following videos are all about painting with watercolor onto Yupo,
a synthetic "plastic surface. The paint lays on top of the plastic surface
and does not soak in. Therefore, all marks are easily erased with a damp brush.
~
Watch below as in the first video of April's painting, I prepare the 
background by applying very thick paint with a palette knife.

Now, watch how I "erase" the paint with a damp brush.
I then, go from lifting paint to applying paint.
