Abstract alcohol ink painting ‘The Wild Ones’
‘The Wild Ones’
There is a storm coming. Large, dark rain clouds are gathering in the sky. The wildflowers are watching, waiting. Their delicate heads turned towards the dark, stormy sky. These flowers are wild, resilient and strong. They do not fear the storm, for they know it will help them grow. They see beauty, the positive in dark times. The silver lining.
The size is 91 x 64 cm. This beauty comes unframed, but finding a frame for this artwork shouldn’t be a problem. My artworks usually come in standard sizes. I prefer to send them unframed, to keep shipping costs down, and to give the buyer to flexibility to choose a frame that fits in their home and their budget. If you would like help with framing, feel free to send me a message.
All art comes signed and with a certificate of authenticity.
It was painted using alcohol inks on Yupo paper. Yupo paper is a special synthetic paper, developed specifically for art. It is very thick, and hard to rip. It is finished with several layers of UV protection and varnish to help prevent fading.
Alcohol inks are highly pigmented, alcohol based inks. They can be used like other media like oils, acrylics and watercolors. By layering the inks, and by using different techniques, the artist can create a feeling of depth and flow. The thing that is different about these inks is how unpredictable they are, and to what extend one can control them. Guiding the inks takes a certain level of skill, but also the ability to accept their unruliness. I think that’s why I love them so much!
All my art is send it either rigid mailers or mailing tubes, so it doesn't get folded.
