Today I tried painting with inks and experimenting with scale, free drawing img and tracing. I didn’t feel happy with any of today’s sampling.
I decided to use ink and bleach on fabric and allow the self directed patterns to dictate the colours for my portrait. This felt much more creative and I instantly started to enjoy the work.
The problem with using inks and bleach is that you can not always get the accuracy that you want. This can be turned into a positive if one is looking for a more abstract look.
