I don’t usually paint abstract pictures as quite frankly I don’t “get” them. However, I was sent a copy of a photograph of the Trummelbach in Switzerland which is basically a corkscrew run off for the melt water (I think!).
With a small section of the photograph in front of me this is what I produced – looks to me like fish going down into the depths of the ocean.
I used Parkers Quink Ink, Permanent Black and household bleach for the seaweed. A bit wacky I know but you must admit it has a strange effect on the ink. The only trouble is the paper still smells of bleach – ho hum.
Anyone else tried anything like this before?
