Blue ink

If it's good enough for Picasso then I'll have a Blue period too.

These pictures were all produced on heavy cartridge paper with a mixture of blue and blue/black ink. The background was left to dry completely before the white ink was applied over the top.

These pictures remind me of Baltic in secondary school and using wax to be revealed a pattern with an iron. I was always very clumsy with the wax and ended up with burnt fingers but fun none the less. The white ink is a new venture for me and its solid impact on the background is very interesting.
