Ink Base

Ready for Rain, 16 x 12 inches
Acrylic inks are a great way to start a painting.  There is a loose freedom in working with ink. Thought I would share s few of the steps in creating this painting.

    First step a very quick sketch to work from using acrylic inks (magenta and yellow)

Next start an underpainting with acrylics:

When this layer is dry, start in on the details:

Letting each layer dry, it is just a bit more refining and the painting is done.
Hope you enjoyed see the steps
Thanks Mary
