I kept thinking to myself, Deep Sea… Deep Sea…, but I couldn’t come up with the last word. So I just stopped at Deep Sea. This piece reminds me of pictures you see of the ocean depths where there is little light. I see eddies and currents and mysterious life forms that can’t be named. This piece started from a failed attempt at printing a photo. If I remember correctly, my daughter printed a photo on the wrong side of the paper. Consequently the ink didn’t adhere and the inks all ran together. I was fascinated with the result and I kept it. I found it this weekend and decided to base my miniature off it. When I glued it down I got some matte medium on the top and in smoothing it I smeared the ink. I then used my brush to make some sweeping strokes along the left side which I pressed with paper towel for texture. I decided that water running through the ink should be interesting so I started applying water and turning the piece this way and that to make designs. I also took a straw and blew at the water to get some finer lines.I like the lacy texture in the background that is a result of the original ink drying. Voila, the second of my water series.
