Alcohol inks, highly pigmented and quick drying, differ from other fluid mediums as they flow, intermingle and create distinctive textures, often with unexpected results. One of the benefits of painting with alcohol inks is the opportunity to begin with an abstract composition and then, as the alcohol evaporates and the ink pools, to see the possibility of adding realistic elements.
During the five-hour workshop students will continue to explore the unique qualities of alcohol ink and how it may be used for flowing abstracted works with the addition of representational elements. More advanced attention to design and color will be emphasized and opportunities to create florals or landscapes using brushwork will be included for those who wish. Class time will be divided between demonstrations of the unique possibilities in painting with this medium and time for personal exploration. As in the introductory class, experimentation with a sense of creative playfulness is encouraged. The workshop will end with a critique allowing participants to share their paintings and to discuss what they have discovered.
Materials student will need to provide: A paint shirt or apron
