"Nesting Cups"

5.5" x 7.5" mixed media on paper
This is the first step to one of the next cup paintings. This is a photo of the painting before I put ink all over it. Below is a photo taken with my ipod (ie; bad photo) of the painting with india ink spread over the surface!
India ink all over the surface!
Tomorrow, I will carefully remove some of the ink from the surface by running this painting under a stream of running water. Scary...... Most of the painting is acrylic, but then I went back onto the surface with gouache and some gold ink. A little experimentation here... this is the before and tomorrow....

I will show you more!!
