I have been playing with my Splash Inks again !
........and have a landscape to prove it!
Today's project is a perfect example of 'letting the paints/inks do their job' motto of mine. Over the years I have realized that the less I fiddle with the paints, the fresher and purer the results are . I feel the final piece definitely looks much brighter this way. When I keep going back with a brush, trying to adjust the values, there is a always a chance that the final piece might end up being muddy and overworked.
The best part of this technique is that you don't have a plan nor a sketch or a definite idea of how it will turn out. With not much control, the final piece is often an interesting surprise! It helps to loosen up and break free. I love doing something like this when I am stuck for ideas or when I just want to experiment with color mixes or techniques.
So, today, I revisited that motto and just let the colors be!
