Ink on watercolour paper


Ink painting is a form of torture as far as I am concerned. One mistake and it’s ruined, tear it up and start again!!! But for some bizarre reason, I love it.

I never relax when I’m doing them. The entire painting process is incredibly intense and I always breathe a sigh of relief when it’s done. But the effects of this unforgiving medium are beautiful.
