Alcohol Ink

One of the artists was kind enough to invite me to her home to give me a private lesson and I just fell in love with this material. My first attempts were just 4 small pieces on yupo paper and all I did was just to get a feel tor the medium

As Riot also just announced a 50% off sale I went straight ahead and bought a complete set of alcohol ink and some Yupo paper.

These are her results

and these were my results

And the next practice day I trued to manipulate the medium to actually get a painting that I could place into my shop for sale and came up with a Cactus
