Step by step
Walnut ink, watercolor, watercolor ground, Ziller ink, pointed pen on paper
3 1/2″ x 9 3/8″
Brushing water on top of a dried wash of walnut ink is what created the squares and blobs on this piece. Although at first I was annoyed at the way the paper soaked up the water and distorted my lovely squares, this actually became one of my favorite parts of this piece.
Anything worth doing — whether a work of art or world peace — is accomplished one step at a time, and those steps are rarely as clean or clear as a perfect square. It’s the doing of them that matters.
