I've been playing around. Also, this was tedious and took forever, but it's gorgeous. Inspired by the way the sunset hits the rocks at the beach, I played around with everything but paint. This piece is 9 x 12 on board, and I used molding paste to sculpt the rocks. I then painted them in with ink instead of paint. Then, I used various artistic papers to collage in the water, and the foam of the waves. Finally, I used leftover holographic vinyl to catch the light.
Ink is an interesting medium! I'd never really worked much with it before, aside from a few drawings with pen and ink. I used a brush for this, and I really like the saturated matte effect. This piece was no joke to put together, and I still have a lot of source material, so I'm putting together a few smaller, similar works for Jackalope in Pasadena. I can't wait to share!
