A Few Alcohol Ink Mini Paintings

no comments

These are my very first alcohol ink paintings. The process is fast and exciting if not exactly controllable. Each of these paintings was completed in under thirty minutes working on Yupo with an eyedropper, cotton ball, cotton swab, gravity, and a mister. The good news it creates beautiful glowing results almost by magic. The bad news is that over half the painting made this way are fit only for the trash. These are the winners:

After Midnight, A Fairytale View of the Munich Rathous

After Midnight, Watercolor of Munich Townhall by Jenny Armitage

After Midnight (17 x 23 watercolor) Available

After Midnight began with a lecture and demonstration I did for the The Watercolor Society of Oregon’s Fall 2016 Convention.  For the demo, I painted the Munich Rathaus Tower six time in various stages of completeness.  Below is the one painting of the six I  completed:

Munich Rathaus (8 x 13 watercolor) Available

I liked the this little painting so much, I felt compelled to do it again in a larger format.  But I didn’t want to just repeat the painting on a larger scale.  The tower, like many in Germany, reminds me of fairy tale illustrations.  So I ran with that notion tweaking the scene just a little to add a rather unreal illustrative moon and an impossible sky.
