Ink and Watercolour wash… old hut

I have done an ink and wash painting of this disintegrating hut before, but each time it comes out differently…. that is because I like to work in a loose, not too structured manner. Interestingly I have been painting in very strong colour recently…. the dance of life series, colourful silk works and watercolour flowers….. and that use of stronger colour has unintentionally carried through here. Usually in ink and wash my colour is more subtle, a minor player as the ink lines dominate.
This work has a destiny mapped out…. re-visit this site next week when all will be revealed.

 This is an activity I ran at the recent Scouts Jamboree held in Tasmania (more photos of participants’ work to come). The pages are of handmade paper onto which I have done some ink painting, pasted in some Tasmania in Miniature actual size prints of my paintings and incorporated snippets of abstract acrylic monoprints. The book measures only 105 x125 mm so fits comfortable in the hand for a personal interaction.
