11.10.15 I am so inspired by the amazingly talented work of Missy H. Dunaway. Wow! Her travel journals make me want to run out and paint! Actually, that's exactly what lead to my little sketch above. I was struggling with my mini urban sketch paintings. Watercolor was too light. Gouache was too chalky. Acrylic was too heavy. Her work is done using acrylic ink. I have a pretty limited selection but i gave it a try. Nice. I took some acrylic paints and just added Golden Airbrush Medium to loosen them up....voila! Instant ink! I love it's opacity. This painting began with just a dark blue wash.
