I’ve been lent a new box set. It’s called ‘Bones’, about a forensic anthropologist and FBI agent who solve cases involving decomposing bodies. Just your average evening viewing. While I was enjoying the witty banter, excessive use of long technical vocabulary and eye candy in the form of David Boreanaz, I was also doodling on my latest inkblots. I’m being forced to work from the sofa because that’s where the blankets are.
I’d been making my inkblots with water and acrylic paint, and then I suddenly remembered I have a whole range of actual ink in different colours, which I could have used for my inkblot paintings in the first place.
Armed with pencil, black ink and my trusty white pen, I came up with this.
This one’s actually a mix of acrylics and inks. As you can see I haven’t strayed far from the whole ‘woman, trees, moon, stars’ theme.
I’m planning to get back in the studio and work on canvas as soon as I’ve worked out how to strap my hot water bottle to my body so I can keep my body temperature high enough to manipulate a paintbrush.
Art while watching Bones – what a great evening!!!! Love the way your ink blots really flowed & how you drew them into your picture!
Love these ink blots 🙂
Fantastic! I really have to give this a go sometime (think it would be good for me to lose the inner control freak…)
Really beautiful piece.
Whoever knew that inkblots could be so interesting 🙂
I love the way a few lines and dots transforms them.
i so love your long, elegant, wise woman… 🙂
Great work! The close ups are great too.
thanks for sharing. I’ll be following you even after AEDM…
I am deeply loving this series, Tara! Every one I look at seems to tell its own story, even if the theme remains the same. Really beautiful work! And so inspiring!
Thanks Effy – welcome 🙂
Thank you everyone! I definitely recommend trying this out, just for fun. 🙂
these are coming along so beautifully and i am looking forward to seeing more of them… need to play with white pens more I think!!!
I love this, so dreamy and gorgeous!
VERY NICE!! Bones is one of my fav shows to watch while I’m drawing and sketching all cuddled up on the couch.
If you’re going to be stuck on the couch, a box set of Bones and some art supplies is a great way to do it!
Thanks for the close-up shots. It’s nice to see the amazing texture you’re creating!
I’m a fan of your ‘theme’ too. I’ve greatly enjoyed all of your pieces!!
