I never said it would be pretty. I only said it would be fun…and yes, I had a lot of fun playing with ink yesterday. I’m happy to say that I did see something emerging from the ink wash creativity exercise I did, and while it might not look like much, remember this started out as simply a blob of ink on the page.
Here’s my gorilla. I know it’s impossible to see the facial features on the scan, but he does look like a gorilla. The fact that I’d quickly “seen” the creature lurking there in the ink made the exercise a success for me.
Another just for fun ink wash was a little harder for me to figure out. I’m not sure exactly what it is, but I like to think maybe it’s the jungle habitat where my hulking gorilla lives.
So, did you do an ink wash too? If you did, please leave a link in the comments below…and if you haven’t gotten around to trying the ink wash exercise, you can still do it. I’ll be happy to add links to this post at any time.
So, I ended up with an ugly black gorilla whose face can’t be seen in the scan and a jumble of rocks and trees or whatever.
I’d love to see other “Inka-Dinka-Doo’s”!
Here is “Inkplay” from teproleum. Check it out!
And, from Carrie, we have An Exercise with Paper, Water, and Ink. I love what she created.
All Inked Up comes from Debi Riley who takes us into the forest with her ink creations.
