The Painted Diaries – June (part 3)

This week I discovered how beautiful the shades of watered-down sumi ink can be. It is so deeply dark when undiluted. Watered down, it transforms into shades of tea, coffee, pebbles and stone…


Running a water-soaked brush along the edge of freshly painted ink

Downward facing dashes become bamboos


Stones and pebbles

Tree-ish vibes


Another set of marks I found slightly disturbing. I had intended to make a flower out of lots of tiny marks. Instead they reminded me of ants gathering around a nest. Eek!
