I have worked further into the drawings I started last week.
More ink, more wax, more bleach.

I have also cut out some of the moths wing sections to add surface interest.

I do like the added colour of the orange, but

I am drawn to the faded, monochromatic quality the bleached ink gives.

Both these drawings are a means to an end and I would like to try to achieve this quality in a print or an enamel.

Looks like you're having a lot of fun. The cut out wings look fantastic, are you going to add another layer behind? I too love the monochromatic look but the orange has a warm glow reminiscent of weathered metals - lovely.

Stunning work, really beautiful.

Are you curious about me? said...

Absolutly amazing.

These 'experiments' as you call them are incredibly beautiful- they look like finished works to me. My experiments do not look this good!
