October 19, 2009 - Day 70

Da Vinci watercolor and Royal India Ink (black)
on Saunders Waterford paper

Second painting in my abstract series and I hate it. I have to remember that there is no "wrong" way to paint an abstract and that I should just loosen up and go with the flow.

On the plus side, I really love the way the black india ink flows on so smoothly and how very black it is against the red paint. As I was painting an image came to mind of an octopus spraying it's ink in a cloud. Maybe tomorrow I will try to paint an abstract that gives that feeling without providing any detail.

I think in the future I will also have to do some india ink paintings/drawings. The black ink is just so beautiful.
